Three equal horizontal stripes (red, white, black).

Meaning

In 1962, after three centuries of Zaydi rule over Yemen, the country was divided into South and North Yemen. Both countries basically carried the design of the Egyptian flag (Pan-Arab colors), with South Yemen adding a blue rectangle and a red star, and North Yemen adding only a green star. In 1990, the two countries reunited under a pure red, white and black flag with no triangle or stars.
