Adopted in 1975, the flag of Angola features two equal horizontal bands of different colors, each taking up half of the flag’s background. The top band is red in color, while the bottom band is black. At the centre of the flag is a golden yellow emblem. The golden color is symbolic of the country’s mineral wealth. This emblem is made up of the right half of a cogwheel (used for moving gears), with a machete positioned across its bottom half (that is said to be inspired by the hammer and sickle), and a five-pointed star at the top and center of the open cog.
Knitted polyester – This is the most common flag fabric. Your flag will be digitally printed onto 115gsm quality knitted polyester.
Handsewn – Giving an extra touch of quality to your flagpole our handsewn flags are meticulously appliqued using 155gsm woven polyester by our team of seamstresses based in the UK. A handsewn flag is an investment so we would recommend adding anti-fray to help prolong the life of your flag. It provides extra protection to the hem to prevent fraying.
Eco-friendly flag – This revolutionary fabric is made from recycled plastic items such as PET bottles and industrial polyester waste which has been melted down into chips, then spun into yarn that is knitted to form a material. It has the same durability, strength and versatility of its knitted polyester equivalent but with a much lower environmental impact. We are the first UK supplier to offer an eco-friendly option rather than the standard polyester flags made from virgin plastic.
