  • Additional Links: The Significance of Ugandan Colors

    : Black, yellow, red were the colours of the Uganda People's Congress party, who came to power in elections in April 1962. The flag was adopted on the date of independence, 9 Oct 1962. To quote Whitney Smith: "The three colours were intended to symbolise the people of Africa, sunshine and brotherhood. The design was made by the minister of justice, Mr Grace Ibingira." The crested crane was the flag badge of Uganda under British colonial rule.
    Dylan Crawfoot, 22 Oct 1999

    I spoke to Grace Ibingira (God rest his soul) and he told me he designed the Ugandan flag (he was first and foremost an artist). It was the second of two designs.
    Tomas Zamudio, 25 Feb 2003

    Do you mean that the current central roundel of the Uganda flag was in the fly of a blue (or red?) ensign as the local colony flag?
    António Martins, 24 Oct 1999

    I'm not sure if it was the exact same design, but there's no reason why it wouldn't have been. Smith says the crested crane "first appeared in the colonial badge of Uganda under British rule", and Crampton simply says (in talking about the origins of the coat of arms) that the crane was the former flag-badge.
    Dylan Crawfoot, 25 Oct 1999

    During Uganda's turbulent recent history, the national flag has remained unaltered.

    Six striped flag of black-yellow-red-black-yellow-red with a crested crane in full colours in a white disk in the middle.
    Jarig Bakker, 5 Sep 2002

    On Graham Bartram's website is the Ugandan national flag with the usual proportions, but the disk is not touching the yellow stripes. Moreover there is a big cut-out of the emblem.

    Central emblem

    Coat of Arms By Dov Gutterman, 6 Feb 2000

    The supporters on either side of the coat of arms are the Ugandan Kob representing the wildlife of Uganda and the Crested Crane, the emblem for Uganda.
    The drum represents Uganda's culture. It was once the belief that drums could scare away evil spirits. A drum chain can be used to transmit messages over a distance of 100 miles in less than one hour.
    The spears and shield are representative of Uganda's traditional form of weapons and symbolise the nation's defence and security.
    The motto reads: "For God and My Country".

    Stolen national symbols of Uganda

    President Idi Amin Dada not only caused the fall of his country and the death of 300,000 people, he also stole the originals of the flag, emblem and coat of arms of Uganda and brought them to Saudi Arabia.
    The government of Uganda officially asked the government of Saudi Arabia assistance in the return of the national symbols of Uganda. When Amin was expelled from Uganda by the Tanzanian army and Ugandese soldiers in rebellion, he fled to Saudi Arabia. He took with him the originals of the national flag, emblem and coat of arms, which had been granted to the new country by the British colonial Governor in October 1962 for the independence. It is possible that Amin's children sold the symbols after their father's death in 2003.
