Flags of the World: Botswana

The Botswana flag is a relatively peaceful and calm looking flag. It consists of a light blue background color that is intersected horizontally by a black stripe, which is bordered by white on each side.

The colors were chosen because they are representative of the Botswana coat of arms, which is used on the Presidential Standard of Botswana.

The light blue color stands for water, but not in the way that water is usually represented on flags. Instead of representing a body of water, it represents rain. This is an important consideration for the people of Botswana because rain is important to the agriculture in the region, but because of their location in the Kalahari Desert, rain can be hard to come by.

The black and white stripes are particularly meaningful as they symbolize the harmony and cooperation of the people of different races who live in Botswana. It also accurately represents the racial diversity of the country, and the liberal nature of society. They even represent the stripes on the zebra, which is the national animal of Botswana.
