Flag of Guinea

The Guinean flag was adopted in 1958 when the country gained independence from France. Since the flag would be identical to the flag of Rwanda, Rwanda was forced to add a capital letter R in the middle of the yellow stripe. The flag is composed of a tricolor of vertical stripes in the style of the French flag. From left to right, the stripes are red, yellow and green, the traditional pan-African colors symbolizing solidarity between independent African races. According to President Séka Touré’s famous speech, the symbolism of the colors is as follows: red is supposed to resemble the blood shed in the fight for the homeland, yellow symbolizes the country’s mineral wealth and the local sun, and the green stripe represents the lush African vegetation.

Guinea Flag

Guinea is located on the west coast of Africa. See Guinea Location on World Map. The former French colony gained its independence on October 2, 1958. In recent decades, despite its mineral resources, the country has been ruined mainly by communist experiments and the bloody dictatorship of Sékou Touré. Due to the senility of the current president, there is largely agony in politics and society.
