Flag of Guyana (GIF)


The flag of Guyana, known as the Golden Arrowhead, consists of a green field with the black-edged red equilateral triangle based on the left side superimposed on the large white-edged yellow isosceles triangle. The colors in the flag are symbolic: red for enthusiasm and dynamism, black for endurance, white for water and rivers, yellow for mineral wealth, and green for agriculture and forests. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted on May 26, 1966.

The shield on its coat of arms features a lily, Guyana's national flower, the Canje pheasant, its national bird, and three lines symbolizing the country's rivers. On top of the helmet on top of the shield, there is an Amerindian head-dress, symbolizing the indigenous people of the country, and two diamonds, symbolizing the country's mining, on the sides of this head-dress. The shield is supported on the sides by two jaguars holding a pickaxe, a sugarcane, and a stalk of rice, symbolizing the country's agriculture and mining.

The Guyana flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Guyana, officially the Guyana Co-operative Republic, is a sovereign state on the northern mainland of South America. Its capital is Georgetown, and its population is about 787,000.
