Facts about the flag:
Angola's national flag consists of two fields in red and black, with a yellow emblem in the middle - comprising a gearwheel, a star and a machete.
The flag was adopted during the independence on November 11, 1975. The upper red half symbolizes the fight for freedom. The black lower half reminds us of solidarity with the African continent. The machete and the gearwheel on the flag represent industry and agriculture.
The machine and the gearwheel also have connections to the communist hammer and sickle.
In the 16th century, Angola became a Portuguese colony. Therefore, Angola used the same flag as Portugal during that era. The Angolan Liberation Movement MPLA (Port Movimento Popular de Libertacao de Angola) used a flag reminiscent of today's flag, but it had a star in the middle instead of the gearwheel and the machete. In 1975, when the new national flag was created, the wheel and the machete were added to link to the socialist hammer and sickle.
The flag was established together with the other national symbols in the new constitution adopted on August 25, 1992.
