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 headdress, symbolizing the indigenous people of the country, and two diamonds, symbolizing the country's mining, on the sides of this headdress. 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 globe.
