Flag of Grenada (GIF)



The flag of Grenada has a large rectangle with a thick red border around it and 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 is 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 dependencies of Grenada. The symbol in the left triangle represents a small coconut, 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, the Santa Maria. There are yellow lions in the red sections and white lilies in the yellow crescents in the green sections. On 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, and 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 globe.
