The Flag


The Tanzania flag was adopted on June 30, 1964.
The Tanzanian flag has five stripes, which run diagonally. The four colors shown in the flag are green, yellow, black, and blue. Each color represents a something special about the country. The green represents the bountiful nature, agricultural activity, and the fertility of the soil. The yellow represents the country's mineral treasures. The black represents the people of Tanzania and the blue represents the the Indian Ocean, which forms a coastline to the country.
