Banner o Chad

Frae Wikipedia, the free beuk o knawledge
Banner o Chad. Proporción: 2:3.

The naitional banner o the Republic o Chad (French: Drapeau du Tchad, Arabic: علم تشاد‎) is a vertical tricolor consistin (left tae richt) o a blue, a yellae an a reid field. Blue wis substitutit for green tae avoid confusion wi neighborin states. The basic design is the same as that o the banner o Romanie, the banner o Andorrae, the banner o Moldovae, an the banner o Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canadae.

Blue seembolizes, offeecially, the sky, hope, an watter; yellow the sun an the desert tae the north o the kintra; red progress, unity, an sacrifice. Red an aa recaws the bluid shed for unthirldom. RGB colours values are, respectively, 12-28-140, 252-209-22 an 206-17-38.[1]

The banner wis adoptit bi law # 59/13 for the autonomous republic[2] an retained on unthirldom in 1960, an in the constitution o 1962. Despite mony poleetical upheavals athin Chad syne unthirldom, the banner haes no been chynged. This mey be acause the banner is no associatit wi ony o the main pouer rivals athin Chad, haein haed nae sense o naitional identity afore unthirldom, an tae a lesser extent efter unthirldom.

The banner wis offeecially adoptit on 6 November 1959.
