At GoArchitect we love to celebrate the beauty of cultures around the world. One of the ways we made this fascination a reality was to create a collection of World Notebooks featuring stylized versions of the flags of every country on earth.
Here are 5 of our favorites from Africa.
Hands down one of the most iconic flags on the African continent. The Kenyan flag has a presence that speaks to its heritage and bold culture.

With its bright colors and traditional shield emblem, Swaziland is a complex blend of symbology. The blue denotes peace, the yellow is for the country's wealth in resources, while the red symbolizes past battles.

The bold colors and angled bands of the Seychelles flag symbolize a drive to create a modern African nation that is forever progressing into the future.

4. Cape Verde
The flag of Cape Verde perfectly illustrates a united country consisting of ten islands off the coast of Africa. The blue stands for the ocean and sky while the white and red bands stand for the road to progress and the journey of creating a new nation.

5. South Africa
The bold colors of the South African flag are a testament to the struggle the country has overcome. Adopted in 1994, after a country-wide competition, the flag is a symbol of a new nation in Africa and the future it strives towards.
