Zimbabwe's national flag is furiously flapping in the center of a heated social media war over what the flag means and people's frustrations with President Robert Mugabe's government.Mawarire went onto social media and challenged people to post pictures and videos of themselves with the national flag and to drape the flag around their shoulders in public.The five colors of the Zimbabwe flag, adopted at independence in 1980, are loaded with political and economic significance.The flag also features a rendering of the historic Zimbabwe bird which is on top of a red star, symbolizing the Marxism espoused by the ruling party at independence.The dueling flag campaigns have sparked some skirmishes in parliament.Others in Zimbabwe think it's a wasteful campaign.
