The flag of Mozambique was adopted in 1983. It consists of three horizontal stripes of teal-green, black and yellow. The black stripe is outlined top and bottom in white. On the left there is a red triangle with a yellow five-pointed star. Layered atop the yellow star is a white book, with a black hoe and Klashnikov rifle with bayonet crossed over it.
The flag’s colours are symbolic. The teal-green represent the landscapes and agriculture of the country. The black symbolises the African continent, and the yellow signifies the country’s rich mineral resources. The red symbolises the blood shed in the struggle for independence. The star represents the international solidarity of the people of Mozambique.
Education is important to the Mozambican people, and this is represented by the open white book. The hoe symbolises the country’s agriculture and the rifle stands for defense of the nation. The design of this flag showcases the nation’s past struggles and its hopeful journey towards harmony.
Your print options
Digital printing – For the budget conscious we offer a standard digital print option. Printed onto 115gsm quality knitted polyester these flags still have the same print quality as our other printed flags.
Handsewn – For an added touch of quality our handsewn flags are meticulously appliqued using 155gsm woven polyester by our UK based team of seamstresses. A handsewn flag is an investment so we would recommend adding anti-fray to help prolong the life of your flag.
Eco-friendly flag – For the more environmentally conscious customer we offer an alternative to the digitally printed standard knitted polyester which is made from recycled plastic items. It has the same durability, strength and versatility of its knitted polyester equivalent but with a much lower environmental impact.
Anti-fray provides extra protection to the hem to prevent fraying and prolong the life of your flag.
