Burundi flag

The national flag of Burundi features a white satire which splits the field into changing red and green areas. The heart of the satire merges into a white disk, where you have 3 red solid six-pointed stars outlined in green.

The green colour signifies hope, the white symbolizes peace, and red those that fell in the struggle for independence. The 3 stars symbolize the 3 main ethnic groups of Burundi: the Hutu, the Twa and the Tutsi. The 3 stars additionally represent the 3 components of the national motto: Unité, Travail, Progrès (“Unity, Work, Progress”), which is identified on the Coat of arms of Burundi.
