Brief History

From 1540 to 1897 Madagascar was known as the Merina Kingdom. The 3colours of the country were white and red. From 1787 the flag was a white-red horizontal bicolour.

The area became a French protectorate called the Malagasy Protectorate in 1882 and a blue-white-red tricolour with a red crescent moon was flown in the area.

In 1897 Madagascar became a colony of France and the French blue-white-red vertical tricolour was flown.

In 1958 the area was renamed the Malagasy Republic, an autonomous republic of France. The modern red and green horizontal bicolour with a vertical white band on the left side was adopted. The flag remained the same when it became a socialist state in 1975 and a republic in 1992.

The Seal of Madagascar

The Seal of Madagascar was adopted in 1998 and features the red outline of the country in a white circle with green and red rays omitting from it. Below is a head of a Zebu and wreath of ravinala plants. Above are the words “REPUBLIC OF MADAGASCAR” and below “HOMELAND, LIBERTY, DEVELOPMENT.”
