Togo flag

Togo's flag is made up of five equal horizontal bars of green (top and bottom) alternated with yellow. In the upper hoist-side corner, there is a white five-pointed star on a red square. The flag uses Ethiopia's pan-African colors, and the design is suggestive to Liberia's flag, which is similar to the flag of the United States, making it a member of both the pan-African and Stars and Stripes flag families.

Green is frequently connected with hope and agricultural richness, yellow with the country's natural resources, and the white star on red square is frequently understood as the guiding light to freedom and the unification of the Togolese people. After the country gained independence from French occupation on April 28, 1960, the flag was formally adopted.
