The flag of Burkina Faso consists of two horizontal stripes in red and green colors and a golden star located in the center of the flag on the borderline of these stripes. The colors used are typical examples of pan-African colors, however, the official explanation says that the red symbolizes the socialist revolution and that the green color stands for natural wealth of the country. Burkina Faso was a French colony until 1960 and it was called Upper Volta. The flag has been adopted in 1984 when the country was renamed to Burkina Faso (in translation "a country of unbribables") after the series of military coups. The colors also refer to solidarity towards other African nations and the golden star recalls the guiding light of the revolution.
