Flag of Namibia

Flag of Namibia

The current flag of Gabon has been adopted in 1960 when the country declared independence from France. It is composed of three horizontal stripes from the top in green, yellow and blue colors. The flag should signal solidarity with the other independent African states since the first two bands were taken from the flag of Ethiopia. Moreover, it refers to the former ties to France as Gabon´s colonizer (via the blue bar). Green stripe symbolizes the Gabonese forest and timber industry, yellow stripe stands for the local sharp sun and the zero parallel, which passes through the country. Blue bar represents the Atlantic Ocean, which washes the western shores of the country, as well as all waters of the country - especially the river Ogooué.
