When most African countries started to gain independence from their colonial powers in 1960's, they got inspiration to their country flags from Ethiopian flag - the only country in Africa, which was not colonized at the end of 19th century. That's why there are so many flags with green, yellow and red colors.

Actually, Liberia hadn't been colonized either.

Liberia was created for freed slaves from North America, that's why the flag is so similar to the United States.
+4
Level 58
May 20, 2020
The whole country is quite similar to the USA. Their capital is Monrovia (named after James Monroe) and their currency is the Liberian Dollar.

Knew only South Africa and Liberia. Gawsh, I hate flags. (Studied them and took the quiz again and scored 34.) There are some really beautiful flags here. Love Seychelles and Swaziland - I think I'll remember those next time this is featured, as well as Madagascar which now makes me think of a large island separated from the rest.

+1
Level 40
Jul 29, 2018
Surly he should, at least you need to accept Eswatini as a type inn
+3
Level 78
Jul 29, 2018
Eswatini may be a type of inn, but the new name of the country is eSwatini, and many are surly about the name change.

Really though, Mali and Senegal are neighbors and the only things that differentiate them are a star and very slightly tweaked hues
+1
Level 69
Dec 22, 2020
They're brothers and sisters, and the colours represent the same strengths and struggles.

I think it's inspiring that they express their unity.

Level 69

I always used to forget it as well, so I made a quiz comparing it to my (adopted) country:

Gabon or Peru?

It was for me mostly, but there some interesting comparisons between these two west coast nations!
