The Flag of Guinea

The flag of Guinea is a vertical tricolor consisting of three equal vertical bands of red, yellow, and green, from left to right.

History

The flag of Guinea was officially adopted on November 10, 1958, shortly after the country gained its independence from France on October 2, 1958. The flag's colors are influenced by those used by the Rassemblement Démocratique Africain, a political party that played a significant role in the decolonization process of French West Africa. The choice of the Pan-African colors aligns Guinea with other African nations that share a common history of colonialism and the struggle for independence. Over the years, the flag has remained a strong symbol of national pride, unity, and the aspirations of the Guinean people.
