The flag of Uganda consists of six equal sized alternating stripes of black, yellow and red, starting at the top of the flag with black. In the center of the Ugandan flag there is a white circle with a crane (bird) in it. The black stripes symbolize the African people. The yellow symbolizes the sun and the red stands for brotherhood and fraternity. The crested crane is a national symbol of Uganda, which was first used during British colonial times. Coat of armsBlack, yellow and red were also the colors of the Uganda People's Congress party, who came into power in elections of April 1962. The original Ugandan flag was adopted on October 9, 1962, the day Uganda gained independence from Britain. When the Congress Party won the election a few years later they introduced a new design based on their colors, which is the current national flag. Uganda’s minister of justice at the time, Grace Ibingira, designed the Ugandan flag. It was the second of his two flag designs.
