The national flag of Grenada was adopted in 1973 soon after the independence from the United Kingdom was proclaimed. The flag was designed by St Antony George in St Parish. There is also a civic national symbol of the country with the same design but other size. The national flag of navy is based on the British blue ensign like in many other former colonies of Great Britain.
On the boarder of the flag there are six small stars representing six national parishes. In the center of the national flag there is a red disc. In the center of the disc there is a bigger star. This star and disc represents Carracou and Petite Martinique. Colors of the national flag are traditional but the meaning is slightly different: red represents courage and vitality of patriots who sacrificed their lives in the struggle for international independence. Gold is the symbol of wisdom and warmth of the continent and green is a symbol of vegetation of the numerous plants on the territory of the country.
