The South Sudan government also specifies that the colours of the flag are to represent

Black African skin.
White: Peace attained after many years of the liberation struggle.
Red: Blood that was shed by the liberation struggle martyrs.
Blue : Waters of the Nile River, a source of life for the country.
Yellow: Star guiding the country and its citizens
Green: The countries natural resources.


The prominent feature of the coat of arms is the African fish eagle (Haliaeetus vocifer), which is common in most areas of South Sudan. It symbolizes vision, strength, resilience and majesty. The eagle is leaning against a traditional shield and crossed spear and spade which symbolize the people’s resolve to protect the sovereignty of their republic and work hard to feed it.



Oh God
We praise and glorify you
For your grace on South Sudan,
Land of great abundance
Uphold us united in peace and harmony.

Oh motherland
We rise raising flag with the guiding star
And sing songs of freedom with joy,
For justice, liberty and prosperity
Shall forever more reign.

Oh great patriots
Let us stand up in silence and respect,
Saluting our martyrs whose blood
Cemented our national foundation,
We vow to protect our nation

Oh God bless South Sudan.
