The Kenyan flag is based on that of Kenya African National Union and was adopted in December 12, 1963 as the country's flag. The color black represents the people of the Republic of Kenya, red for the blood shed during the fight for independence, green for the country's landscape and natural wealth. The white fimbriation was added later to symbolize peace and honesty. The black, red, and white traditional Maasaishield and two spears symbolize the defense of all the things mentioned above.
The Flag of South Sudan bears similarities with that of Kenya. The horizontal black, white, red, and green bands of the flag share the same design as the Kenyan flag, and the Pan-African symbolism thereof.
