In the 19th century Guinea-Bissau was colonized by Portugal. Upon independence, to prevent confusion with Guinea, the name of the capital of the country was added to its name. The flag of Guinea-Bissau was adopted in 1973, the year of the state’s independence declaration. It consists of two horizontal bands colored yellow and green and one vertical band colored red. On the latter there is a Black Star of Africa symbolizing the African countries’ unity.
