Botswana President's flag

The flag of the President takes the blue of the national flag as its field. Centered upon that blue is a black-bordered white disk which reminds one of the colours of the national flag.  The national coat of arms is placed upon the white disk. The arms begin with a shield of traditional African shape. It is supported by zebras which hold a tusk and a sorghum plant. Respectively, these represent racial harmony, the wildlife of Botswana, and agriculture of the country. The cogwheels refer to industry while the bull's head symbolizes animal husbandry. The blue wavy, heraldic lines refer to the national motto of "Pula" which means more than its
literal translation of 'rain'. Pula is a concept that embodies the belief in the notion that all will be good and well in the future.
