Equatorial Guinea was a Spanish colony until it achieved independence on 12th October 1968. The present flag was hoisted on the day that Equatorial Guinea gained that independence. The blue triangle represents the sea, which joins the continental regions with the islands. Green stands for agriculture and its tropical forests, the white stands for peace, and the red stands for the blood shed in the struggle for independence.
The central emblem, which was altered during the 1978-79 dictatorship of Francisco Nguema, but later reinstated after his ousting and subsequent execution, comprises a silk cotton or "god" tree, common in the forests of Equatorial Guinea, and originally emblem of Bata, the capital of the province of Rio Muni. The six stars represent the mainland territory and the five islands. Underneath is a scroll bearing the motto "Unidad Paz Justicia" (Unity Peace Justice).Contact us to purchase
