The flag of Eritrea was officially introduced on 24.05.1993. It has its origin in the flag of the Eritrean Liberation Front (EPLF), founded in 1970. Their flag carried a yellow star instead of the yellow olive branch and the yellow olive wreath. It evolved from the flag of autonomous Eritrea, which was used between 1952 and 1959.
The flag of Eritrea is divided into three sections. In the center an isosceles triangle in red with its base on the pole side, above a right-angled green triangle, below a right-angled blue triangle. In the red triangle a yellow olive branch with olive wreath of the same color. Red stands for the blood spilled in the fight for freedom, blue for the sea wealth, green for agriculture and fertility. The olive wreath with the olive branch is an image of the UN globe. Eritrea owes its political recognition to the UN.
Red equilateral triangle (on the side of the flagpole) penetrating two right triangles; the upper of which is green, the lower blue; a golden ear of corn encircles a golden olive branch attached to the pole side of the red triangle.
