Flag of Gambia

Flag of Gambia

Gambia is located in West Africa on the Atlantic coast and its flag has been adopted in 1965 when the country gained independence from the Great Britain. The flag consists of three horizontal stripes - red one on the top, blue one in the midlle and green one at the bottom. The stripes are separated by narrower white stripes. The blue bar represents the river Gambia, which is the main flow of the country. The red stripe symbolizes the sharp rays of the local sun and the green bar indicates the land. Another interpretation says that green should commemorate the forests and that red stripe should stand for savannas. Gambia is the smallest state of the African continent and another interesting fact is that its only neighbor is Senegal.
