The flag of Botswana is a light blue color with a black horizontal stripe running across the center. The black stripe is bordered by two thin white stripes, one on the top and one on the bottom.
The blue background symbolizes water, while the black and white stripes represent the racial harmony between Botswana’s black and white citizens.
The current design of the Botswana flag was adopted in 1966, when the country gained independence from Britain. The flag was designed by a student named Michael Scott, who won a national competition to design the new flag.
