History of the Grenada Flag

The national flag of Grenada was adopted on February 7, 1974, after the country gained independence from the United Kingdom. It was designed by Anthony C. George, a native of Soubise, Grenada. The flag is a unique symbol of the nation’s identity and reflects its culture, political history, and natural beauty.

The flag features a diagonal left division with yellow at the top and green at the bottom. In the center is a red border enclosing a circle with a nutmeg, one of Grenada’s major export products. This border divides the flag into four triangles – green at the top and bottom and yellow on the sides, each with seven five-pointed stars representing the seven parishes of the country.

The color green symbolizes the island’s lush vegetation and agricultural resources, particularly nutmeg and mace crops, which are significant to Grenada’s economy. Yellow represents the warmth of the sun and the friendliness of its people, while red stands for courage and vitality. The seven stars also signify the unity and harmony among the parishes.

The flag has undergone changes since the first recorded flag used in the 19th century. The current design replaced the colonial flag, which featured the British Blue Ensign with a Grenadian coat of arms. The adoption of this flag marked a significant moment in Grenada’s history, symbolizing its newfound independence and national pride.

The Grenada flag, with its bold colors and distinctive nutmeg symbol, is a powerful emblem of the nation’s heritage and aspirations. It reflects a deep sense of national pride and a commitment to progress and unity among its people. The flag continues to be a source of inspiration and identity for Grenadians both at home and abroad.
