Color and Design

A rectangle divided diagonally into two yellow triangles at the top and bottom and two green triangles at the hoist and fly, surrounded by a red border charged with six five pointed yellow stars, another five-pointed yellow star on a red disc at the centre, and a nutmeg at the hoist.

Meaning & SymbolismThe green represents the islands' vegetation and agriculture, while the yellow evokes the sun, as well as the warmth and wisdom of Grenadians. The red represents harmony, unity, courage, and vitality. Altogether, these three colours represent the Pan-Africanist movement. The yellow stars on the red border symbolise the country's six administrative divisions, while the yellow star on the red disc at the centre signifies the capital, St. George's. The symbol of a nutmeg at the hoist alludes to one of the primary agricultural exports of the islands. The country is one of the largest producers of nutmeg in the world. Consequently, Grenada has acquired the nicknames of "Isle of Spice" and "Spice Island".
Description and Brief History

The flag of Grenada consists of two yellow triangles at the top and bottom and two green triangles at the hoist and fly. These are surrounded by a red border charged with six five-pointed yellow stars – three at the top centre and three at the bottom centre – along with an additional star on a red disc at the centre and a nutmeg at the hoist triangle. Adopted in 1974 to replace the temporary design used since the islands became an Associated State of the United Kingdom, it has been the flag of Grenada since the country gained independence that year. Designed by a local Grenadian, it utilizes the colours of the Pan-Africanist movement.
