The Golden Arrowhead, as Guyana’s flag is known, was adopted in 1966 after the country became independent from the United Kingdom. It was designed by American vexillologist Whitney Smith. The red in this flag symbolizes for zeal and dynamism, the green represents agriculture and forests, and the gold represents Guyana’s mineral deposits. The black and white fimbriations were not part of the original design. The black stands for endurance while the white represents water and rivers.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Guyana’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
