Statesman Tie’s Zambia Tie was designed to represent the flag of Zambia. The design takes elements from the Zambia flag and mixes them together with the easily recognizable shape of the state to create a tie that can be worn at any time for any occasion.
We decided to use the eagle from the flag as the main symbol of the tie. The Zambian green was used as the background for the tie and the red, black and orange stripes from the flag were used as the stripes of the tie. Something that uses all of the elements of the flag and creates a classic tie.
Regarding the flag specifically: “The flag of Zambia is the national flag of Zambia. It was adopted upon independence on 24 October 1964. Before that, Zambia was the British protectorate of Northern Rhodesia and used a defaced Blue Ensign as its flag.
The current flag is used as both national flag and ensign. It is green with an orange-colored African fish eagle in flight over a rectangular block of three vertical stripes, colored, from left to right: red, black and orange. The placement of the eagle and block of stripes at the flag’s fly is notable as most emblems and devices on flags are placed at center or at the hoist. The colors used in the flag of Zambia are rich in symbolism. Green stands for the nation’s lush flora, red for the nation’s struggle for freedom, black for the Zambian people, and orange for the land’s natural resources and mineral wealth. Additionally, the eagle flying above the colored stripes is intended to represent the people’s ability to rise above the nation’s problems” (Source, here. )
