The flag of Guinea consists of three vertical stripes: red, yellow, and green, in equal proportions from left to right. Each color holds significant symbolism for the nation. The red stripe represents the bloodshed by the martyrs for Guinea’s independence struggle. Yellow embodies the country’s rich mineral resources, while green symbolizes the lush vegetation and agricultural wealth.
Together, these colors reflect Guinea’s history, natural beauty, and aspirations for prosperity and unity. Adopted upon gaining independence from France on October 2, 1958, the flag stands as a proud emblem of Guinean identity and resilience, embodying the spirit of its people and their quest for freedom and progress.
