Nigeria Flag

Nigeria's flag was adopted on October 1, 1960, after Nigeria became independent from Great Britain. The flag consists of three vertical bands of green and white; it is a vertical triband. The green symbolizes the land, and the white symbolizes unity and peace.

This flag was chosen in a competition held in 1959; the winning entry also had a red sun with rays on it, but the sun and rays were removed by the judges. The flag is twice as wide as it is tall.
