Ruto settles on a green presidential standard 

Ruto settles on a green presidential standard flag that will be raised wherever he is after his swearing-in on Tuesday.

President-elect William Ruto has settled on a green presidential standard similar to that of late President Daniel Moi.

President Moi settled for the green with a red cockerel as his successor the late President Mwai Kibaki went for white with two olive branches.

A presidential standard is an official flag of the President, displayed alongside the national flag where the President is and pulled down as soon as he leaves. 

It is designed and made to the President-elect’s liking by the Kenya Defence Force (KDF).

Details of the other symbols that shall be contained in the flag are however yet to be revealed. 

It however shall contain two crossed spears and a shield bearing the colours of the national flag. 

These two symbolize unity and readiness to defend the country’s freedom.

“We want a bit of mystery, let’s allow the fifth President to come and unveil his standard here. I don’t know whether he’d want it described today,” Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said while giving a brief on Tuesday’s Swearing in and Inauguration plans.

Outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta had a blue one which was an inspiration from the founding President the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta( dark blue standard).

For Uhuru, he added a dove symbol-The National Alliance party symbol while his father’s yellow cockerel was the Kenya African National Union party symbol.
