Equatorial Guinea flag

Equatorial Guinea's flag, which includes a horizontal tricolor of green, white, and red stripes with a blue triangle at the hoist, was officially adopted on August 21, 1979.

The map's six stars reflect the country's mainland and five islands. Green signifies the country's natural riches, farmland, and forests; blue represents the sea that connects the mainland to the islands; white represents peace; and red represents the blood poured by those who battled for independence.

During Francisco Nguema's dictatorship, the flag was changed and a new national emblem was adopted. The original flag was reinstated after Nguema was deposed.
