The Burundi flag was officially adopted on June 28, 1967. The three stars represent the three ethnic groups that live in the country: the Hutu, Tutsi and the Twa. The three stars also stand for the three elements of the national motto: Unité, Travail, Progrès (“Unity, Work and Progress”), which can be seen on the coat of arms of Burundi. They also represent the loyalty that the citizens of the nations have pledged to their God, king and country. The red in the flag stands for the independence struggle, the green for hope and the white for peace.
