Colors have symbolic meanings. And they don't always have to be the same in all geographies. In this article, we will examine the meanings of the flags that carry the colors black, red and yellow.
I would like to say from the beginning. Not every flag has any meaning either. We waited, hoped and searched for it to happen, but for some we could not find any results.
I don't think it's an archive error. Because even though there was no written document, the members of the nation under the flag would at least know.
Sometimes the flag creates the meaning, not the flag, so I see this lack of knowledge not as a real deficiency, but as the nature of the Human and I start writing.

Country Flags





Papua New Guinea (1956–1969)


Belgium flag

Belgium's flag consists of three vertical bands of black, yellow and red, representing the country's national colours. These colors are taken from the coat of arms of the Duchy of Brabant and its vertical design can be based on the flag of France.

Angola's flag came into use when the country gained independence on November 11, 1975. The flag is horizontally divided into two, red at the top and black at the bottom, with a symbol in the middle.

The color red represents Angola's colonial period, the struggle for independence, and the blood spilled in defense of the country, while the black color represents Africa.

Papua New Guinea flag

The flag of Papua New Guinea was adopted on 1 July 1971. The flag represents the Southern Cross in the upper left corner and a Bird of Paradise in the lower right corner. This design was chosen as a result of a nationwide design competition in 1971. The winning designer was Susan Karike, who was 15 at the time.

Red and black are the traditional colors of many tribes of Papua New Guinea. The Bird of Paradise is also found on the national coat of arms. The Southern Cross indicates that the country is in the southern hemisphere and can be seen in Papua New Guinea.

The coat of arms of Bern is used by the Swiss city of Bern and the canton of the same name. In the center of the coat of arms is an upward walking black bear with red tongue, claw and penis on a red background.

Today the city of Bern continues to display bears in Bärengraben, just outside the Altstadt.
