Flag of Grenada

Flag of Grenada

The flag of Grenada , which has been adopted after gaining the independence in 1974, is considered one of the most remarkable flags. The sheet is framed by a red stripe with three yellow five-pointed stars on the top and at the bottom. The central part is divided by two diagonal lines into four fields from which the left and the right fields are green and the upper and the lower fields are yellow. In the center of the flag, there is a seventh star in a red circle. In the left green field, a nutmeg, typical commodity of the island, is displayed. The colorfulness of the flag reflects the vitality of the local population and the central star represents the capital Saint George's. Another six stars stand for six administrative districts of the island.
