Senegal's flag is a tricolor composed of three vertical stripes of green, yellow, and red. At the center of the flag is a five-pointed green star. The green hue represents hope and the Islamic faith, the yellow color indicates prosperity and the country's mineral wealth, and the red color represents the blood of those who fought for independence.
Senegal obtained independence from France in 1960, and the flag was formally approved. It replaced the flag of the Mali Federation, a short-lived entity that Senegal was a part of from 1959 to 1960. The current and former flags were influenced by the French Tricolor, which flew over Senegal during the French colonial period. The flag represents the country's dedication to unity, liberty, and progress.
