History of the Ugandan flag

The flag of Uganda was adopted on October 9, 1962, the date that Uganda became independent from the United Kingdom. It consists of six equal horizontal bands of black, yellow, and red, repeated twice. These are representative of Africa's peoples, sunshine, and brotherhood, respectively. A white disc is superimposed at the center and depicts the national symbol, a Grey Crowned Crane, facing the hoist side. This bird is fabled for its gentle nature and was also the military badge of Ugandan soldiers during British rule
