Flag of Grenada
Adopted after independence in 1974, the flag of Grenada is considered one of the most remarkable flags ever. The sheet of the flag is bordered by a red stripe, in the upper and lower parts of which there are three yellow five-pointed stars. The middle part is divided by two diagonals into four fields, of which the left and right fields are green and the upper and lower fields are yellow. In the center of the flag is the seventh star in a red circle. Nutmeg, the typical crop of the island, is shown in the left green field. The colors of the flag reflect the vitality of the local population and the central star represents the capital city of Saint George’s. The next six stars then mark the six self-governing regions of the island.
