The flag of Busia County has three equal horizontal stripes of light green,
black and blue. In the centre of the black stripe is the county logo
(black on white) which is also found in the centre of the county Arms. The
logo features a stylised fence with an open gate which symbolises the importance
of cross border trade in the local economy.
