Guinea flag

Guinea's flag is made up of three equal vertical bars of red, yellow, and green. The colors were inspired by the flag of the Rassemblement Démocratique Africain, which was a powerful political movement during Guinea's independence in 1958.

These colors were inspired by Ghana's flag, which had adopted them in 1957. Guinea's first president, Sékou Touré, was a close acquaintance of Ghana's former president, Kwame Nkrumah. Guinea's flag has been in use since the country's independence in 1958 and serves as a symbol of the country's sovereignty.
