The flag

Cote d'Ivoire’s flag (orange, white and green), also known as the "tricolor flag" is the national ensign of Cote d’Ivoire’s republic. Its status of national flag is affirmed in the article 29 of the Ivorian Constitution. This "2:3" rate flag is composed of three vertical strips with equal bandwidth.

 

Colors and their meanings

First, the orange color symbolizes the savannas in the north of the country; then, the white color represents peace; while the green color symbolizes both the hope and the forests in the south.

 

Dimensions and colors

The three bands of the Ivorian tricolor flag must have the same bandwidth and the mast is always placed on the side of the orange band. Although all the laws define the colors of the flag, they do not specify the nuance. Thus, bright orange and green colors can be replaced by slightly darker tones, depending on location and circumstances. The national flags and distinctive marks album, 2000’s edition of the Marine Hydrographic and Oceanographic service, indicates that the official colors of the Ivorian flag are orange 151c and green 347c.

Protocol and label

The ensign of Cote d'Ivoire’s Republic is generally floating in the air.

There is often confusion between the flag and the ensign. The flag is permanently fixed on a flagpole and is "struck" on a halyard. Moreover, the shaft must be adorned with a gilded spear.

Commonly these rules are admitted at international level. The tricolor flag floats on all public buildings. The honors are rendered to him according to a very precise ceremonial, for instance when the President of the Republic speaks publicly, the Ivorian flag is placed behind him. There is also the flag of ECOWAS or the flag of another country depending on the circumstances.

 

Disposition

Cote d'Ivoire’s flag must always be hoisted this way: orange stripe to the flagpole, or displayed with the strips in the correct order (orange-white-green). Hoisting it or displaying it upside down is a sign of distress (at sea for instance) or is considered a mark of disrespect. The flag must never touch the ground, and must be maintained to float properly without hindrance, or caught in branches or its own shaft. When several flags are hoisted at the same time, they must be raised at the same speed so that they start and stop at the same time. If the flag is raised or lowered with the national anthem, the rigging must start at the first note and stop at the last note.

 

Presence of two flags: on crossed poles, the flag in the place of honor is located to the right (to the left of the observer). The other flag is to the left (to the right of the observer).

Three flags: the honor place is in the center.

 

More than three flags: they are arranged in single file on separate poles with equal seize. The honor place is at the end of the line, to the left of the observer, then the other flags appearing in the alphabetical order of their names if they belong to the same serie (see below the order of precedence) . If the masts are arranged in such a way that the center is higher, the flag of honor will be hoisted. It’s all the same for a facade, a roof, etc.

 

Order of Precedence

The tricolor national flag takes precedence over all the others (Cote d'Ivoire’s flag> ECOWAS’s flag).

The other flags of the same rank are entitled to the same marks of honor. They must be of identical dimensions and hoisted at the same height.

Current flags always take precedence over historical flags, including in a specific historical location.
