The territory of Northern Rhodesia was administered by the South Africa Company from 1891 until takeover by the UK in 1923. During the 1920s and 1930s, advances in mining spurred development and immigration. The name was changed to Zambia upon independence in 1964. The flag is unusual because all of the devices used are in the fly making the devices difficult to see clearly except in strong winds.
The colours used are those of the once dominant United Nationalist Independence Party (UNIP), dating back to 1964 when Zambia won its independence. The red stands for the struggle for freedom, the black for the Zambian people, and the orange for natural resources and mineral wealth, mainly copper. The green is said to represent agriculture and forestry. The eagle is representative of the people's ability to rise above the nation's problems.Contact us to purchase
