National Flag of Guyana
According to aceinland, the national flag of Guinea-Bissau is composed of three horizontal stripes of equal size. The top and bottom stripes are green, while the middle stripe is yellow. In the center of the flag is a red five-pointed star with an outline in white. The green stripes represent hope and fertility, while the yellow stripe represents the sun, wealth and progress. The red star symbolizes socialism and African emancipation, while the white circle around it stands for peace and unity.
The design of the flag was adopted on May 24th, 1973 after achieving independence from Portugal in 1974. It was chosen to represent the struggle for freedom that had taken place in Guinea-Bissau over many years. The colors are also symbolic of its geographical location in West Africa; green representing its lush vegetation, yellow representing its gold reserves, and red standing for its struggle for freedom from colonial rule.
The national flag is flown proudly throughout Guinea-Bissau at government offices, schools and public events to commemorate the country’s independence day on September 24th each year. It can also be seen flying alongside other flags at international events such as football matches or meetings between world leaders.
Guinea-Bissau’s flag is a source of pride for citizens who are reminded of their nation’s struggle every time they see it flying high above their country. It serves as a reminder to all people that despite their differences they can come together under one banner to celebrate peace, freedom and unity in a common goal – that being to create a better future for all citizens of Guinea-Bissau regardless of race or religion.
