The islands São Tomé and Príncipe are located in the Gulf of Guinea and its flag has been adopted in 1975. It consists of three horizontal stripes - two green on the top and at the bottom and a yellow one in the middle. In the left part of the flag a red wedge is placed. Moreover, the yellow stripe bears in its center two black stars that represent both islands. The selected colors have traditional Pan-African interpretation - black color represents the African people, green vegetation of the islands, yellow stands for the sun and red is to commemorate the efforts spent on achieving independence. The islands were under Portuguese rule until 1975 and the current flag has been inspired by the flag of the movement for independence.
