All of our printed Sierra Leone flags are produced by a process called Dye Sublimation. The system drenches each fibre of the fabric, resulting in a flag with wonderful precise colour, and vitally the design appears perfectly on each side. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.

Brief History

When the British colonialized Sierra Leone in 1889 the area adopted a British Blue Ensign with a badge that featured an elephant, palm tree, desert, mountains and red “S. L.”.

In 1914 the badge was changed on the blue ensign to reflect the area gaining its own coat of arms, which featured a native person looking at a boat and a palm tree below a Union Jack.

When Sierra Leone was granted independence in 1961 a new flag was adopted. It is a red-white-blue horizontal tricolour.

The Coat of Arms of Sierra Leone

The Coat of Arms of Sierra Leone was adopted in 1960 and features a shield split into three. The top part is white with three torches, the centre part is green with zig zags and a gold lion and the bottom part is white with two blue wavy lines.

At either side of the shield is a gold lion with a palm tree and below is grass with a banner stating “UNITY, FREEDOM, JUSTICE”.
