Grenada National Flag

Feb 17th, 2019

 

Grenada is an island country that is located in the Caribbean Sea. It consists of the island of Grenada and six smaller islands that measure 134.6 square miles. The city of St. George’s serves as the country’s capital. Grenada is one of the largest exporters of spices, mainly nutmeg and mace, and, because of that, is known as the Island of Spices. The country was granted independence from the United Kingdom in 1974 and established a unitary two-party parliamentary government under a constitutional monarchy.

 

The same year that Grenada gained its independence from the United Kingdom it adopted a national flag. The flag was designed by artist Anthony C. George, but how it was chosen is unknown.

 

The meanings assigned to the flag design include the following:

 

*     Gold: Warmth and wisdom

*     Green: Agriculture and vegetation

*     Red: Courage and vitality

*     Stars (6 total): The 6 parishes (or districts) in the country

*     Star (center of flag): St. George’s, the capital of Grenada

*     Symbol on the hoist side of flag: Clove of nutmeg and Grenada’s former name – the Isle of Spice
