Namibia’s National Flag was unanimously adopted by the Constituent Assembly on 2 February 1990 as a symbol of the country’s struggle for national unity. It symbolises peace, unity and common loyalty to Namibia. The National Flag represents the nation in every aspect:
The flag of Namibia's President represents the supreme authority of the head of state and chief executive and is flown to indicate his presence. The flag is also flown on the President's car. The flag is rectangular with three triangles in the colours blue, gold and green. The gold is charged with the Coat of Arms. The use of the President's Flag is restricted to Namibia. When the President travels to other countries only the National Flag is used. This means that only the National Flag can be flown in foreign countries to represent Namibia, while the President's Flag represents the status and authority of the President of Namibia.
The National Coat of Arms is the official emblem of the Government service as a statutory body. The Coat of Arms is depicted on all official publications and stationery.
Private bodies may not use the Coat of Arms without the express permission of the President.
