Flag of Guinea-Bissau

The flag of Guinea-Bissau 🇬🇼 has been adopted in 1973 and it consists of three stripes where two of them are horizontal and one is vertical. Horizontal stripes have yellow and green color, whereas the vertical one in the left part of the flag is red and it carries a black five-pointed star. The colors used are typical of many African nations, thus represents their mutual solidarity. Yellow reminds the sharp African sun, green fertile soil and red stands for bloodshed in the struggle for independence. The black star symbolizes the African continent. The flag resembles the flag of Ghana, the first African nation that achieved independence. Guinea-Bissau followed Ghana in 1973, when it was liberated from Portuguese rule.
