Flag of Togo

The flag of Togo was designed by Aheyi Paul and it has been adopted in 1960. It consists of five horizontal stripes altering between green and orange-yellow color. In the pole part of the flag, a red square that bears symbol of white five-pointed star is placed. The colors used are of classic pan-African symbolism, therefore, it stands for solidarity among all the independent African nations. The flag´s design is very similar to Liberian flag. Five lanes allegedly represent the five regions of the country - the coast, the plateau, the central region, Kara region and savannas. Another interpretation says that the five bars indicate five fingers, which should symbolize human behavior.
