Flag of Senegal

The flag of Senegal, which has been adopted in 1960, is composed of three vertical stripes of green, yellow and red colors. Moreover, in the middle of the central yellow stripe, a green five-pointed star is located. The colors are typical pan-African, where green indicates lush vegetation of the country as well as the Muslim religion, yellow stands for sunshine, arts and welfare and red refers to bloodshed in the struggles for independence of the country. The tricolor is also derived from the French tricolor as Senegal was a French colony until 1960. Green star symbolizes openness to the other five continents. Originally, Senegal used to share one flag with Mali, which bore the symbol of Kanaga.
