National Flag

Zambia Flag

The Zambian national flag is primarily green, symbolizing the country's natural resources. Red symbolizes the struggle for freedom, black for the people of Zambia, and orange for minerals. There is also a flying eagle which represents Zambia's independence and freedom.

History

In the 9th century, the territory of Zambia was home to the Chiluba, Lunda, Kaluo Luo and other tribes of the Kingdom of Ba Luozi. From 1889 to 1900, the British claimed it as part of the British South Africa Company, which gradually controlled the eastern and north-eastern region of Zambia. In 1911, Britain merged the two to Rhodes, named as "Northern Rhodesia protected." In 1924, the British Government sent the direct management of Northern Rhodesia and in January 1964, Northern Rhodesia achieved internal self-government, with a formal declaration of independence and a change of name to the Republic of Zambia happening later that year, although the country remained in the Commonwealth.

Economy and Cultural Customs

The main agricultural products are corn, cassava, cotton, tobacco, peanuts, and sugar cane. Zambia is mineral-rich, with copper reserves of about 6% of the total world reserves. The northern border is about 220 kilometers long with a width of 65 kilometers and, according to Yu, is known as the "copper belt" and "Copper Country." The cobalt and copper ore reserves rank second in the world, and Zambia's mining industry is an important pillar of the economy. Copper is particularly important in Zambian society, and is used to decorate many buildings. Shop put a wide variety of copper technology is simply a "copper in the world." Lusaka, the "copper are," said.

Covering an area of 22,500 square kilometers, the park was completed in 1950 and is now home to a wide range of animals, primarily elephants, lions, hippos, rhinos, baboons, ants, bears, and cheetahs.
