Pan-African Tricolour with French influence: facts and history of Mali Flag

Having the particular African colours red, green and gold, the flag of Mali is identical to the Guinea Flag, only that in its case the colors are in the reverse order.
The facts and history of Mali Flag kept alive in the memory of the country’s citizens are that this flag has the actual form due to their Islamic belief that it is not appropriate to have icons of the human being made, and that is exactly what on the flag was pictured in prior: a human figure with the hands raised toward the sky.
