Flag of Guinea

As the flag would be exactly the same with the flag of Rwanda, Rwanda was forced to add capital letter R to the middle of the yellow stripe.

These colors have traditional Pan-African character that symbolizes solidarity between independent African states. The symbolism of these colors was explained during the famous speech of president Séky Touré - red should commemorate the bloodshed in the struggle for the homeland, yellow symbolizes the mineral wealth of the country and the sun and the green stripe represent the lush African vegetation.
