The flag of Sierra Leone has been adopted in 1961, when the country achieved independence from the Great Britain. The flag consists of three horizontal stripes - a green one is located on the top, white one in the middle and blue one at the bottom. Green symbolizes the lush vegetation, mountains and agricultural tradition of the country, whereas the white color stands for peace and unity. The blue stripe reminds Atlantic Ocean, which washes the shores of Sierra Leone. This color combination was probably inspired by the national coat of arms. Sierra Leone has a relatively mountainous profile, especially in the northeastern part of the country, that is why the literal translation of the country´s name means "lion mountains".
