Arba Minch University will be celebrating 8th Ethiopian National Flag Day on 19th October, 2015. The national flag (Sendek Alama) will be hoisted at the old management building in a colourful ceremony to be held at Main Campus at 8.30 am. University President, Dr Feleke Woldeyes will grace the function in the presence of other top officials including academic, administrative, support staff, students and others. The program will be organized by Corporate Communication Directorate.
It’s a day for all the Nations, Nationalities and Peoples of Ethiopia to renew their promises to attain their common vision through the unity they created and continue to march on the path of renaissance.
The national flag’s central emblem represents both the diversity and unity of the country. Blue represents peace, the star represents diversity and unity, and the sun's rays symbolize prosperity. The green recalls the land, yellow stands for peace and hope, and red is symbol of strength and sacrifice.
