The Guyana flag, known as The Golden Arrowhead, has been the country's national flag since May 1966, when it gained independence from the United Kingdom. Whitney Smith, an American vexillologist, created it (though originally without the black and white fimbriations, which were later additions suggested by the College of Arms in the United Kingdom).
The national flag's proportions are 3:5. The colors are symbolic, with red representing zeal and vitality, gold representing mineral richness, green representing agriculture and forests, black representing endurance, and white representing rivers and water.
