The Zimbabwe Flag is made up of seven stripes, a triangular section containing a star and a stylized bird. The ‘Zimbabwe Bird’ is the national symbol of Zimbabwe. The original birds were found as stone carvings in the ancient ruins of Great Zimbabwe.
The star stands for the political hopes of the country and the white triangle for post-independence peace.
The green stripes represent the land and natural resources, yellow the mineral wealth, red the blood sacrificed during the struggle for independence, and the black in the centre, the people.
