|Adopted||5th November 1975|
|Design||A green-yellow-green horizontal tricolour with red triangle and two five-pointed black stars.|
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.
