Flags of Africa - Countries Starting With A

Guest Author - Jeanne Egbosiuba Ukwendu

African countries have gone through many changes in recent history. This includes their flags. The current flags have elements that represent concepts and ideas important to that country. Each flag is unique in its own way. Below are the flags for the African countries beginning with the letter A.


Ascension Island FlagAscension Island

Ascension Island does not have a unique flag. Ascension Island is part of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. The Union Flag of the United Kingdom is used for official purposes.




Algeria FlagAlgeria

The Algerian flag was adopted on July 3, 1962 and has two equal vertical bands of green and white. There is a red, five-pointed star inside a red crescent moon centered on the flag over the green and white fields. Green represents Islam, white represents purity and peace, and red represents liberty. The crescent moon and star are Islamic symbols. The crescent moon is more closed than those of other Muslim countries because the Algerians believe the long crescent horns bring happiness.
