President's flag

A flag for the President of Namibia was designed by the State Herald of South Africa, Mr Fred Brownell, a member of the Sub-committee investigating new national symbols for Namibia in 1990. It is based on the design used by the South African State President at that time and incorporates the blue, green and gold colours which had been the most popular amongst the entries received by the sub-committee. The design for this flag was approved on 16 March 1990 and comprises a gold triangle, with its base the full length of the hoist and its apex the middle of the fly edge, with a blue triangle above and green triangle below. In the gold triangle is the full achievement of the Namibian coat of arms. The official description is as follows:

The flag of the President of Namibia shall be a rectangular tricolour in the proportion of three in the length to two in the width, from hoist per pile throughout, blue, gold and green; the gold charged in the hoist with the Arms and supporters of the Republic of Namibia proper, the height of the full achievement being one half of the width of the flag, with its centre line positioned one third of the flag, away from the hoist.

Blue over green bicolour overall a golden-yellow triangle with base at hoist reaching the fly. On the triangle the national coat of arms. I made this image using the Coat of Arms from the current image on FOTW. The President uses this flag only inland.  Whilst abroad the national flag is used according to Album 2000.
