The eleven stripes stand for the eleven signatories of the Liberian declaration of independence. The Liberia’s national flag is called “Lone Star”. The eleven horizontal stripes represent the eleven signers of the declaration of independence and the constitution of the Republic of Liberia; the blue field symbolizes the continent of Africa; the five pointed white star depicts Liberia as the first “independent republic” on the continent of Africa; the red color designates “valor”; the white, “purity”; and the blue, “fidelity”. Although these representations are uniquely Liberian, the flag itself is a replica of “Old Glory”, the national flag of the United States.

That flag was adopted in 1971 and comprises diagonal stripes of blue-red-green, the most important colours of the Ovambos, the largest ethnic group in the country. The gold sun, which is similar to the national emblem of the Republic of China, represents life and energy. Red - represents Namibia's most important resource, its people. It refers to their heroism and their determination to build a future of equal opportunity for all. White - refers to peace and unity. Green - symbolises vegetation and agricultural resources.
