The flag of Kenya (Swahili: Bendera ya Kenya) was officially adopted on December 12, 1963.
The Kenyan flag is based on that of Kenya African National Union. The color black symbolizes black majority, red for the bloodshed during the fight for freedom, green for the land; the white fimbriation was added later to symbolize peace and honesty. The black, red, and white traditional Maasai shield and two spears symbolize the defense of all the things mentioned above.
