The flag of Tanzania consists of a yellow-edged black diagonal band, divided diagonally from the lower hoist-side corner, with a green upper triangle. Adopted in 1964 to replace the individual flags of Tanganyika and Zanzibar, it has been the flag of the United Republic of Tanzania since the two states merged that year. The design of the present flag incorporates the elements from the two former flags.
The United Kingdom occupied the majority of German East Africa in 1916 during the East African Campaign. Three years later, the British were tasked with administering the Tanganyika Territory as a Legue of Nations mandate. In 1954, the Tanganyika African Association became the Tanganyika African National Union (TANU). The aim of the political party was to attain Independence for the territory, its flag was a tricolour consisting of three horizontal green, back and yellow bands.
