The official flag of Guinea is made up of three vertical bands of red (left), yellow (middle), and green (right). These are the Pan-African colors symbolizing the unity of the African nations.
Yellow stands for the abundance of mineral resources especially gold in the nation; yellow is also said to represent as the bright sun that shines over the land of Guinea.
Green represents the vegetation, the forests, and other natural resources of the country. It is also a symbol of the prosperity and the fertile soils of the nation.
