The National Flag of Zimbabwe was officially adopted on April 18, The National Flag of Zimbabwe features seven equal horizontal bands of green top , yellow, red, black, red, yellow, and green with a white isosceles triangle edged in black with its base on the hoist side. A yellow Zimbabwe bird is superimposed on a red five-pointed star in the center of the triangle. The yellow color stands for the wealth of minerals found in the country, gold is predominant as well as copper, nickel, chromium, and other precious metals. The red color signifies the bloodshed by the people of Zimbabwe while fighting for their freedom from the British colonialists. The black color symbolizes the black heritage of the African people who form the majority of the Zimbabwean population. The white triangle represents the peace that was attained after independence and the return of power to the people.
There is a commonly held belief that national anthems have a unique power over people. They are examples of unisonance , which is a situation where people, wholly unknown to one another, utter the same verses to the same melody. National anthems are now a single — but powerful — part of the paraphernalia of national packaging, alongside flags, currency, or postage stamps, the iconography that many of us inherit and which we come to regard as both normal and normative. Yet although the words of these songs are often banal and their tunes mediocre, simultaneously singing an imagined sound seems to bring people together. And although music often acts as a unifying factor in social contexts and is often flaunted as being a universalizing phenomenon, it also often serves as a rallying point for expressing personal and group identities, thereby exaggerating rather than minimizing differences. This is the case with national anthems.

When American Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong landed on the moon in July , the first thing he did was to hoist the American flag on the lunar surface. He was later joined by fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin and together, they spent two and a half hours on the moon. They made history. Similarly, when the same Americans entered Bagdad and toppled Saddam Hussein during the Iraq War in , the first public act they undertook was to bring down the huge statue of Saddam Hussein at the centre of the city to seal their victory. Those acts might seem small and insignificant but they are more than a mere declaration of presence; they are a claim of ownership.
The yellow represents the country's mineral wealth. The red represents the blood spilt during the liberation struggle. Black represents the black majority. The white triangle stands for peace and the "way forward".

Great Zimbabwe was a hectare 1, acres city that flourished between roughly the 10 th and 15 th centuries A. The ruins contain numerous stone enclosures with soaring walls as tall as 11 meters 36 feet. They were made without the use of mortar. Much of Great Zimbabwe is unexcavated and what the different enclosures were used for is a source of debate among archaeologists. The earliest written records for the city date to the 16 th century, a time after it was largely abandoned. The nation adopted the name Zimbabwe in , using the name that the Shona had long before given to the city. Also the flag of Zimbabwe shows a bird sitting on a pedestal, which is a representation of a type of artifact found at Great Zimbabwe.
Black represents the black majority of people of Zimbabwe.
Он решил было обратиться в полицию - может быть, у них есть данные о рыжеволосых проститутках, - но Стратмор на этот счет выразился недвусмысленно: Вы должны оставаться невидимым. Никто не должен знать о существовании кольца. Может быть, стоит побродить по Триане, кварталу развлечений, и поискать там эту рыжую девицу. Или же обойти все рестораны - вдруг этот тучный немец окажется. Но и то и другое вряд ли к чему-то приведет.
Но честно говоря, она в это уже почти не верила. - Пусть ТРАНСТЕКСТ работает, - принял решение Стратмор. - Я хочу быть абсолютно уверен, что это абсолютно стойкий шифр.
