Kampala pastor wants Uganda flag changed, Crested Crane standing on one leg removed
- A city pastor, Isaac Lubega insists that the current Uganda flag where the Crested Crane is standing on one leg and looking backwards is not representative of the country. He proposes that a change is required to introduce a flying crane to symbolise that the country has intentions of moving forward.
- Lubega argues that the crested crane standing on one leg ‘facing the dead end’ ignores the strides Uganda has made towards economic, social and political development.
- The current national flag was designed by then Minister of Justice Grace Ibingira, approved by the British administration and adopted on 9thOctober 1962.
- Lubega adds that the new proposed National flag will consist of; a red star and the compass, symbolising the Spirit of nationalism and Leadership rotation, 15 Black stars, refering to the 15 Ethnic political regions of Uganda with the spirit of unity and ownership.
