[Tanzanian President's flag] image by Željko Heimer, 28 Mar 2003 See also:

President's flag

President of the Republic. 2:3
Blue bordered green flag with emblem in the middle. The emblem is actually the coat of arms of Tanzania without the supporters (but with elephant tusk) and without panel (but with the ribbon with the motto). The motto reads UHURU NA UMOJA (Freedom and Unity, in Swahili).
I suppose that this flag may be as old as the national flag, i.e. 1964. At least it is shown already in [smi75].

In all versions that I have the letters (motto) in the arms are red. Other differences are the parts of the ribbon featured in green, that are maroon or perhaps dark gold, and the fire that is gold or orange, darker than the torch. Until 1964 the arms were slightly different but I don't know if that shows on the presidential flag

This is the presidential flag. The guy in the picture is the new Tanzanian president on his first day in office.

I received the following photo which shows a table flag of the Tanzanian President's flag but the blue fimbriation is not clearly shown.

At a close look with my magnifying glass I thought that I could see that the green flag has a fringe of blue. The reflection in the table top shows it clearly. Maybe the fringe replaced the blue border?

First, my apologies to Andre for not seeing his similar post first. Secondly, I have been able to locate a photo of the Tanzanian presidential flag confirming it does have a blue border, at least along the fly, top and bottom edges.
