The flag of Suriname features five horizontal bands of green, white, red, white, and green, from top to bottom. The top and bottom green bands symbolize the country’s fertility.  The two thinner white bands represents justice and freedom. The red band represents progress and the fight for independence. A yellow five-pointed star, representing unity and hope for a bright future, is at the center of the flag. The flag’s design is a testament to Suriname’s natural beauty, its journey towards independence, and its aspirations for unity and prosperity. It serves as a proud symbol of Surinamese identity and national pride.
