The flag of Angola
first came to be used upon the nation gaining independence from Portugal on the 11th of November 1975. Its 2:3 design is split horizontally into two equal halves of red (upper) and black (lower). The golden emblem in the centre depicts half of a mechanical gear, with a machete resting upon it, adorned with a star. The flags colour scheme is inspired by flag of The Popular Liberation of Angola, the political party who fought for an end to colonial rule in Angola. Therefore, it was decided that an edition of their flag be used to represent the newly independent nation. The original flag had only a star in the centre, rather than the entire emblem. The gear and machete is meant to mirror the hammer and sickle found on the flag of the Communist Soviet Union, with the five-pointed star being lifted from the Liberation partys flag. According to the national constitution, the red on the flag is to represent the bloodshed in fighting for independence, with black representing Africa. The gear in the emblem represents industrial might, and the power of the worker, with the machete to represent the peasantry. The colour gold was chosen to represent the wealth of Angola.
