|Flag of Burundi|
|Adopted||June 28, 1967 |
The flag of Burundi has a white saltire, splitting the background into four sections. The top and bottom of these sections are red, and the other two are green. In the center of the flag, covering the slatire intersection, is a white circle with three six-pointed stars in a triangle equidistant from each other. These stars' triangle is in the center of the circle, pointing upwards, and the stars are red with green outlines.
The three stars represent the Hutu, Tutsi, and Twa groups within Burundi, and the national motto "Unity, Work, and Progress.". The red represents the blood shed and the struggle for independence. Green hepresents hope and optimism, and the white represents peace.
