Flag of Grenada (GIF)

The flag of Grenada is composed of two yellow triangles at the top and bottom and two green triangles at the hoist and fly. These are enclosed by a red border adorned with six five-pointed yellow stars—three at the top center and three at the bottom center—in addition to an extra star on a red disc at the center and a depiction of a nutmeg at the hoist triangle. The colors and symbols of the flag hold cultural, political, and regional significance. The green embodies the lush vegetation and thriving agriculture of the islands, while the yellow represents the sun as well as the warmth and wisdom of the Grenadian people. The color red signifies harmony, unity, courage, and vitality. The yellow stars on the red border represent the country's parishes, with the yellow star on the red disc at the center symbolizing the nation's two sister islands, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, which are regarded as the country's seventh parish. The inclusion of the nutmeg symbol at the hoist triangle serves as a nod to one of the primary agricultural exports of the islands, acknowledging Grenada's distinction as the second-largest producer of nutmeg in the world, trailing only Indonesia. In conclusion, the flag of Grenada is a vibrant representation of the nation's rich cultural heritage, natural resources, and regional significance and stands as a proud emblem of Grenada's identity, history, and aspirations for a prosperous and united future.
