Nigerian Flag

 


The Nigerian flag consists of three equal sized vertical bands - the right and left bands are green; while the middle band is white. The green color represents agriculture, while the white color symbolizes peace and unity.


The flag was designed by Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi ( who was then a student) in 1959 and it was adopted  and first hoisted on October 1, 1960 as the national flag. Nigeria gained independence from the British government on the same day the flag was first hoisted. It therefore represents our independence from slavery and colonial ruler-ship.

The Nigerian national flag law prohibits anyone from improper flying or exhibition of the flag in any condition that compromises it's quality and purpose. It must not be defaced, altered or torn.
