The design of the flag of the former flag of the Kavango
"The Kavango Flag shall be green with three horizontal stripes of equal width in the centre which from top to bottom shall be orange, white and blue.
The width of the Kavango flag shall be equal to two-thirds of its length.
The width of the three horizontal stripes shall be one-sixth of the width of the flag".
Kavango is relatively well-watered, in contrast to much of the remainder of the country. Consequently the area is greener and this is the explanation for the predominance of green on the flag. The orange, white and blue stripes link this flag with the principal colours of the former South African national flag.
Kavango was re-incorporated into Namibia at independence on 21 March 1990 and this flag is no longer in use.
