Facts about the flag:
The flag was adopted on the 14th of October, 1958, two years before the country gained its independence from France. However, after a referendum, the country decided to remain associated with France in the French Union.
The colors red and white are typical colors for Southeast Asia, which people immigrated to and from Madagascar, and they were also the colors that adorned the Merina Kingdom from the 1790s until the country became a French colony in 1896. The white color stands for purity, rice cultivation and the female traditional national dress "lamba". Red is the clay covering the walls of the house, and green symbolizes the national symbol Ravenala madagascariensis (the traveler's tree).
