The flag of Botswana, which has been adopted in 1966 during the declaration of independence, is composed of a pale blue sheet, which bears a black horizontal stripe in its center. Moreover, the entire sheet and the stripe are bounded by a white trim. The symbolism of colors has several interpretations. One of them says that the flag has been inspired by a state symbol, whose motto is Pula (Setswana in the local language), which means "Let there be rain". Therefore, blue color should symbolize water, black and white stripes are supposed to commemorate zebra, the national animal of Botswana and also shield bearer. Three colors can also represent various ethnic groups living in the country and hope for their peaceful coexistence.
