Brief History

The Portuguese colonised São Tomé and Prínciple in 1470 and the area adopted the flag of Portugal as the national flag.

When the country was granted independence in 1975 a new flag was adopted. The new flag was similar to the previous flag of the movement for the Liberation of São Tomé and Prínciple. It was a green-yellow-green horizontal tricolour with red triangle and two five-pointed black stars.

Each colour of the flag has a specific meaning, the green represents the land and the lush vegetation of the country, the yellow represents the sun, the red represents the struggle for independence and the two stars represent the two islands.

The Coat of Arms of São Tomé and Prínciple

The Coat of Arms of São Tomé and Prínciple was adopted in 1975 and features a yellow shield with a palm. A falcon is at the left hand side and a parrot on the left. Above is a blue five-pointed star with a banner stating “REPUBLICA DEMOCRATICA DE S.TOME E PRINCIPE” and underneath is a banner stating “UNITY, DISCIPLINE, WORK.”

The Historical Coat of Arms of São Tomé and Prínciple

Here are some examples of the historical coat of arms of Portuguese São Tomé and Prínciple. They all feature the crowned armillary sphere with a shield containing a water wheel, green wavy lines and the five blue shields with five white circles.
