French Guiana is an overseas department of France on the northern Atlantic coast of South America in the Guianas. It has no capital city and its population is approximately 300,000.

The flag of French Guiana consists of a red five-pointed star in the middle of triangular areas divided diagonally, green at the top and yellow at the bottom. The upper green triangle represents forests, and the lower yellow triangle represents numerous underground resources such as gold. The five-pointed red star symbolizes the socialist orientation of the country. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on January 29, 2010. (Moreover, only the French flag is officially recognized as the national flag by the French constitution.)
