The Gambia is one of the smallest African states. It is surrounded on three sides by Senegal and on the fourth side by the Atlantic Ocean: its borders are the result of Anglo-French colonial disputes. The Gambia became an independent state in 1965 and adopted its flag the same year. The original idea for the flag came from the Gambia, but the design was prepared by the College of Arms in London.
The blue in the flag represents the Gambia River, for which the country is named. The blue passes through the red, symbolizing the sun beating down, and the green, symbolizing the lush and fertile land and agriculture. The white is to symbolize unity, purity and peace. This flag, and these colours, were designed specifically to have no political connotations.Contact us to purchase
