The national flag of Guyana is also called the golden arrowhead. There are five colors used in the national symbol: green, yellow, red white and black. The flag was adopted soon after the country got independence from Great Britain. All colors used on the national flag have symbolic meaning: green stands for forests and agriculture, white is a symbol of rivers and other water spaces on the territory of the country, yellow is a symbol of the country`s wealth and its richness in mineral resources, black symbolizes here hard work and red means zeal and dynamism.
Independence of the country was proclaimed in 1970. Since then the country had a number of leaders most of them tried to make amendments to the national flag to make it similar to presidential standards but they all were rejected because it seemed important for the citizens to have an identic flag as a symbol of national identity.
