Flag of Equatorial Guinea

The flag of Equatorial Guinea, which has been adopted in 1979, consists of three horizontal stripes of green, white and red colors. On the pole side of the flag, a blue wedge is placed. In addition, the white stripe bears an emblem of the country depicting baobab which is a typical plant of Equatorial Guinea´s geographical location. Above the baobab, six golden stars shine thus representing five islands and continental part of the country. At the bottom of the coat of arms, there is an inscription: "Unity, peace, justice." The blue color of the wedge indicates the Pacific Ocean, green stands for jungle, white color traditionally symbolizes peace and red should remind blood shed during the struggle for independence.
