Where it is
The flag of Kenya has specific colors. There is a Maasai shield and crossed spears in the middle of the flag. "The color black symbolizes the majority population. The color red symbolizes the blood shed in the struggle for freedom. Green stands for natural wealth, and white for peace. The shield and crossed spears symbolize the defence of freedom."
