Ethiopia Flag - This flag design is a tricolour flag of green, yellow and red with a blue disc in the middle. The disc contains a yellow star and rays in yellow. The symbolism of the colours are:
Green - The richness of the land and its fertility, as well as hope.
Yellow - religious freedom and peace
Red - the sacrifice of our fathers, who spilled blood in defense of Ethiopia.
The Star and rays symbolise Ethiopia's bright future, while the rays (all being equal) are said to represent the equality of all Ethiopians regardless of race, creed or sex.
There has been a number of versions of this flag over the years, dating back to 1897 when the flag design was of 3 pennants combined in a rectangle tricolour flag, with the red on top, then yellow and green. In 1914, the colour order was changed to what it is now. The tricolour scheme has existed since the early 19th century, and the colours red yellow and green have carried significance since the early 17th century.
Our World flags are finished with a loop at the top and bottom of the flag to be used with clips to attach to the rope and run up a flag pole. Clips are included with the flag for your convenience.
