The flag of Sierra Leone is a vibrant symbol that reflects the nation’s history, values, and aspirations. Adopted on April 27, 1961, the design features three horizontal stripes of green, white, and blue. The green stripe represents the country’s agriculture, natural resources, and lush vegetation. The white stripe symbolizes justice and unity, highlighting Sierra Leone’s commitment to these principles. The blue stripe represents the Atlantic Ocean along the nation’s coastline. At the hoist side, there is a green equilateral triangle, representing the mountains and the country’s rich mineral wealth. Within the triangle, a gold lion holds a palm branch, signifying strength, endurance, and peace. This emblem encapsulates Sierra Leone’s resilience and hope for a peaceful future.
