Lango Chiefdom flag

scan by John D McMeekin, 31 Mar 2007

The flag of the Lango Chiefdom in Uganda has 3 horizontal bands of blue over white over blue, with a white disc in the centre overlapping onto the blue bands.  The disc is about the same height as the disc in the Busoga flag.  In the centre of the disc is a black rhino, facing towards the hoist.
