Flag of Liberia 🇱🇷

Flag of Liberia

The flag of Liberia 🇱🇷, which has been adopted in 1847, at first glance resembles the flag of the United States, and thus reflects its colonial past. However, Liberia was not a classic colony, it served since 1822 as a colony for freed slaves from the United States. Instead of the white star, the original flag displayed a Christian cross, which has later been replaced by a star in order to highlight an independence of Liberia. Eleven white or red stripes refer to eleven men who signed the Declaration of Independence of Liberia. The blue rectangle in the upper left part of the flag stands for the African continent and the star itself symbolizes the shining light of Liberia.
