The flag of Laikipia County features a green field with the Arms of the county displayed against a white silhouette of a map of the county in the centre. The arms show a pastoral scene on a circular shield.  Two people in traditional garb are farming, one caring for livestock while the other tends to crops, with Mount Kilimanjaro in the background.  Crossed spears are behind the shield, which is supported by a rhinoceros on the right and an elephant on the left.  Below the shield on a ribbon is the motto "ONE PEOPLE · ONE COUNTY · ONE DESTINY."  Above the shield on a green ribbon in yellow letters are the words "COUNTY GOVERNMENT OF LAIKIPIA."
