History & Meaning of the Angola Flag 

The Angolan flag was adopted on November 11, 1975, the same day the nation declared independence from Portugal. The design was created by Henrique Onambwé, who served as the country’s Minister of Industry and was based on the flag used by the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola. This political group fought the Portuguese during the war for independence and today is the ruling party in the Angolan government. 

According to the Constitution of Angola, the red stripe represents the bloodshed of Angola’s struggle against colonialism, and the black stripe symbolizes Africa. The emblem of the half-gear wheel stands for factory workers and industrialization, the machete is for agricultural workers, and the gold star is for international solidarity and the country’s wealth.
