The Federation of South Arabia and Tanzania - Afroasian Flag Twins

Flag of South Arabia

The flags of Tanzania and South Arabia align by colours and design - sky blue, yellow, green, and black. The flag of South Arabia is no longer official. South Arabia would eventually evolve into Yemen after the cold war.

These lands lie or lied along the Indian Ocean at the cross roads between Asia and Africa. It was with union of Zanzibar with Tanganyika that Tanzania was created with a new flag. Thus from 1962 unto 1967 these flags were in active alignment.

Likewise the cultural roots of Zanzibar stem from Southern Arabia or modern day Yemen. With these two nations the cultures of Arabia and Africa come together. They are distant nations yet related.
