The flag of Kenya was adopted in 1963 and it consists of black, red and green stripes, which are divided by two white stripes. The center is decorated with a shield of Masai warriors. The black color represents the African population, the red blood shed during the struggle for independence and green stands for Kenyan green vegetation and fertile soil. White stripes have unifying character and also stand for peace. Moreover, these colors are characteristic of the Kenyan African National Union, which has established itself during the struggle for independence over Britain. White stripes bordering both sides of the red stripe can also remind the opposition – the African Democratic Party of Kenya. Crossed spears of the Masai shield indicate readiness to defend national independence in the future.
Lions and leopards are just part of the landscape in Kenya, one of East Africa’s favourite safari destination. More than 40 national parks and nature reserves are scattered between Lake Victoria and the Indian Ocean, covering every imaginable landscape and featuring just about every animal in Africa: from aardvarks to zebras.
As you might expect, wildlife safaris are the lifeblood of Kenyan tourism, and the infrastructure for travellers is impressive. Jeeps, buses and light aircraft fan out daily across the country to safari lodges and tented camps, some simple and rustic, others lavish and opulent. Refreshingly, you can enjoy close encounters with nature even on a budget, with walking safaris run by tribal guides and economic-tented camps that scrimp on creature comforts, but not on creatures.
