Flag of Grenada (GIF)


The Grenada flag has a large rectangle with a thick red border around it with six yellow stars, three on the upper edge and three centered on the lower edge. Rectangular, yellow and green are divided into four triangles. In the center of the flag is a red disc carrying a five-pointed yellow star, and a coconut shell in the left green triangle.

The six stars on the border represent the six congregations of the country. All seven stars in the flag represent Carriacou and Petite Martinique, the dependency of Grenada. The symbol in the left triangle represents a small coconut tooth, one of Grenada's major products. The red color of the flag refers to courage and vitality, the yellow to wisdom and warmth, and the green to vegetation and agriculture. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted on February 7, 1974.

The shield in its coat of arms is divided into four parts by a golden cross, in the center of which is Columbus' flagship, Santa Maria. There are yellow lions in the red sections, and white lilies on the yellow crescents in the green sections. At the top of the shield are a golden helmet, and seven roses, which represent the seven communities of Grenada and are housed in a wreath of bougainvillea branches. To the left of the shield is an armadillo standing in front of a corn plant; to the right is a Grenada dove standing in front of a banana plant.

The Grenada flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Grenada is a sovereign country in the southeastern Caribbean Sea, consisting of the island of Grenada and six small islands. Its capital is St. George's, and its population is about 109,000.
