    Flag of Angola

  • Coat of Arms: The emblem of Angola was adopted in 1990, and reflects the recent past of the new nation.

    It features a machete and hoe, symbolizing agricultural workers and the revolution the nation went through to gain independence. The yellow star represents progress, and the rising sun a symbol of new beginnings. Encircling the emblem is half of a cog-wheel, representing industrial workers, and half of a vine for the coffee and cotton industry.

    The open book below is a symbol of education, and the banner underneath reads: "Republic of Angola" in Portuguese.
