The soapstone bird featured on the Zimbabwean flag represents a statuette of a bird found at the ruins of Great Zimbabwe. The bird symbolises the history of Zimbabwe; the red star beneath it symbolises the revolutionary struggle for liberation and peace.

Officially, the meanings of the colours on the flag are as follows:

  • Green: the agriculture and rural areas of Zimbabwe
  • Yellow: the wealth of minerals in the country
  • Red: the blood shed during the first and second Chimurenga (wars)
  • Black: the heritage and ethnicity of the native Africans of Zimbabwe
  • White Triangle: peace
  • Zimbabwe Bird: the national symbol of Zimbabwe
  • Red Star: the nation's hopes and aspirations for the future (as well as ZANU-PF's socialist beliefs)

The colours are used on the flag of the ruling ZANU PF party.
