Description and Brief History

The national flag of Burkina Faso (French: drapeau du Burkina Faso) is formed by two equal horizontal bands of red (top) and green, with a yellow five-pointed star resting in the center. The flag was adopted on 4 August 1984. The flag is coloured in the popular Pan-African colors (red, yellow & green) of the Ethiopian flag, reflecting both a break with the country's colonial past and its unity with other African ex-colonies. The flag was adopted following the coup of 1983 which brought Thomas Sankara to power.
