Flag of the Gambia (GIF)



The flag of the Gambia consists of three horizontal red, blue, and green bands, separated by two narrow white bands. The blue color represents the Gambia River, and the red evokes the sun. Green symbolizes green forests and agricultural products. And narrow white bands represent unity and peace. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on February 18, 1965.

The shield on its coat of arms has a hoe and an axe, representing the country's agriculture and its two major ethnic groups. Above the shield are a palm tree, the national tree of the country, and a heraldic helmet. The two lions supporting the shield represent the Gambia's colonial history as part of the British Empire.
