Equatorial Guinea Flag
Republic of the Congo Flag
The national flag of the Gabonese Republic comprises three horizontal stripes of green (top), yellow (middle), followed by the blue stripe.
Gabon was originally an overseas territory of France and the country adopted its indigenous flag when the country gained independence from the French rule, on August 17, 1960.
The present flag was designed in 1959 but at the time the French tricolor was imposed on the flag. This was later removed after independence.
