The flag was designed by the Independence Committee and selected for use as the National Flag in 1962. Their colors are red, white and Black.

The color red is the most expressive of our country. It represents the vitality of the land and its people, is the heat and the sun’s energy, courage and kindness of the people.

White is the sea that these lands are bound: the cradle of our heritage, the purity of our aspirations and the equality of all men under the sun.
The Black represents for us the dedication of people united by a strong bond. It is the color of strength, unity, purpose and wealth of the earth. The colors chosen represent the elements earth, fire and water covering all of our people’s past, present and future and inspire us as one united, vital, free and dedicated.
