Zimbabwe Flag

We carry authentic Zimbabwe Flags in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Our flags are proudly made in the United States from durable nylon and are printed with vibrant long-lasting inks. The Zimbabwe national flag is often displayed at embassies, outside of businesses associated with Zimbabwe, and at the homes of people who take great pride in their Zimbabwe heritage.

Our indoor flags are finished with a pole hem and your choice of with or without golden fringe. Gold fringe is the traditional way to display an indoor flag, however, some people choose without fringe for a simple and clean look that is also less expensive. If you are looking for a complete indoor presentation set, our Build Your Own Indoor International Flag Set program allows you to select a durable nylon indoor Zimbabwe Flag and choose between premium quality poles, bases, and ornaments, and tassel. For indoor applications, most buyers choose a 3ft. x 5ft. flag with an 8ft. pole, however, if you have a low ceiling, you may opt for a 7ft. pole, which is designed to work with drop ceilings. If you are looking for a very substantial international flag display, our 4ft. x 6ft. indoor flags can be paired with a 9ft. pole for our largest indoor display option.

Our outdoor international flags are finished with a canvas header and brass grommets and are offered in four sizes: 2ft. x 3ft., 3ft. x 5ft., 4ft. x 6ft., and 5ft. x 8ft., to fit any sized flagpole. Typically, outdoor flags are flown outside of government organizations, businesses, and institutions on in-ground and wall-mount flagpoles, however, some people also buy these flags to display their international pride at home. If you are looking for a wall-mount Zimbabwe flag set to display outside of your home, our Build Your Own Outdoor International Flag Set program will allow you to choose between premium quality 6ft. poles and brackets to display the Zimbabwe Flag on your front porch. Outdoor flags can also be displayed indoors on interior walls of your home with screws anchored in the wall to attach to the grommets.

In addition to the flags we offer for purchase, we maintain an archive of historical information about the Zimbabwe flag, demographic data about Zimbabwe, and free high resolution images of the Zimbabwe flag for use in projects and on websites.

Regardless of your application, we are looking forward to working with you to provide the required flags, flagpoles, and hardware for your application. If you need assistance, please reach out to us by phone, email, or chat, and we will be happy to help.



History of the Zimbabwe Flag

The Flag of Zimbabwe features seven horizontal bands in the colors of green, yellow, red, black, red, yellow, and green. On the left-hand side of the flag is a triangle, pointing towards the center that features a bird on a 5-pointed red star in the center. The green color represents the rich agriculture of the country and the rural areas, the yellow color represents the wealth and the minerals of the country, the red color represents the "struggle for independence" and the blood shed during the first and the second Chimurenga Wars, and the black color represents the race, heritage, and ethnicity of the country. The white triangle represents peace and the eagle is the national emblem of the country and represents a statuette of a bird found at the great ruins of Zimbabwe. It also symbolizes the history of the country and the eagle "exemplifies the strong bond that ancestral humans had with animals, nature, and spiritual guides." The colors used on the flag of Zimbabwe are the Pan-African colors that represent the Unity of the African continent and Africa's independence.

Zimbabwe is a landlocked country that is located in Southern Africa and shares borders with Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, and Mozambique. The capital and largest city of Zimbabwe is called Harare. Zimbabwe translates as "big houses of stones" or "honorable houses." In 1888, Cecil John Rhodes formed the BSAC (British South Africa Company) and colonized Zimbabwe and in 1895, the country was referred to as Rhodesia. Zimbabwe was under British rule from 1890, until they reached independence in 1965. Between 1896-1897, the Ndebele-Shona (Bantu ethnic group) revolted against the British South Africa Company in what became known as the First Chimurenga (or second Matabele War) but were unsuccessful.

Zimbabwe is considered to be one of the poorest countries in the world and the economy is very reliant on the production of goods such as coal, gold, steel, and cement and the export of products such as gold and tobacco. Zimbabwe is home to the largest gold and platinum reserves in the world. Tourism contributes slightly to the economy with the main attraction being the largest waterfalls in the world, Victoria Falls. Another main attraction is the Lake Kariba which is the largest man-made lake in the world and the Hwange National Park which is home to more animals and wildlife than anywhere else in Zimbabwe. The National Museum that is located in the country's second largest city, Bulawayo is considered to be one of the best museums on the continent and is home to many displays of the country's history and wealth as well as animals and wildlife, including the second largest mounted elephant. The Great Zimbabwe Ruins are another important attraction and are the largest ancient structure in Africa and collection of ruins.
