The meanings of Amazigh Flag

The three colors symbolize the three origins of the Berbers of Morocco:

PaidVerts

  • Blue - the Berbers who live by the sea
  • Green - the Berbers from the mountains: the Rif and the Atlas
  • Yellow - the Berbers who came from the desert
The sign in the middle is a retranscription of our "Z" in Amazigh alphabet and symbolizes the human yearning for freedom, with his arms wide open, lifted skyward.
