All of our printed Surinam flags are made by a process called Dye Sublimation. This process impregnates the fibres of the fabric, the result is a flag that has very accurate colour, and importantly the design appears clearly on both sides of the flag. 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.
Our flags are manufactured to the highest standards. We offer flags in a choice of two materials, Hand Made National Flags, and Digitally Printed National Flags

|Adopted||25th November 1975|
|Design||Two green bands, two white bands and a large red band with yellow five-pointed star at the centre.|
Since the early 19th Century Suriname had been a Dutch Colony. The first official flag was the 1959 Dutch Overseas Territory Flag.
This flag design featured a plain white field with five multi-coloured stars on an ellipse. Each coloured star represented an ethnic race living in Suriname. The white star represented the white Europeans; black star represented the Creoles, brown star for the Indians, red star for the American Indians and yellow star for the Chinese.
In 1975 Suriname was granted independence from the Dutch and a new flag was introduced. The 2:3 proportioned flag featured two green bands representing hope, two white bands for peace and one large central red band symbolising love with a large gold five-pointed star in the centre representing the unity of the ethnic groups in the country.
The Coat of Arms of Suriname
The Coat of Arms of Suriname was adopted in 1975 and features an oval shield split in two. The left side of the shield depicts a boat and the right a palm tree, in between is a star in a green diamond.
At either side of the shield are natives holding bows. Below the shield is a banner stating “JUSTICE, PIETY, FIDELITY”.
