The flag of Uganda is designed to display 6 equally sized bands in black, yellow and red. The stripes and colored in that order starting from the top. The color pattern repeats itself for the other three stripes on the flag. In the center of the flag is a white disc with the image of a Balearic crested crane standing on one leg, facing the hoist end of the flag. The crane is known for its gentle nature and is often recognized as a national symbol for Uganda. The crane was first used in military badges during Colonial rule. The black color on the flag is said to represent the Ugandan people, the brotherhood and harmony that connects the people is represented by the red stripes and the yellow stripes act as a symbol for sunshine. The flag was designed by the Minister of Justice at the time, Grace Ibingira, who was also an artist.
