Guinea adopted this flag in 1958. Its colors are those of the African Democratic Rally, the dominant movement at the time. They are also the Pan-African colors. This flag’s design may come from the French tricolor since Guinea was a French colony. Red represents the people’s sacrifice, gold represents the sun and the riches of the earth, and green represents vegetation.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
