Brief History

In 1884 Germany became a Protectorate of the area that was to become Togo. The German black-white-red horizontal tricolour, with coat of arms at the centre, flag was flow until 1914 when the British and French forced Germany out of the region.

In 1916 Britain and the French occupied Togoland and split it up into administrative zones in 1922. The flag in British Togoland was the Blue British Ensign with the emblem of the Gold Coast at the centre right.

The Flag that was flown in French Togoland was the French blue-white-red vertical tricolour.  In 1956 French Togoland became an autonomous republic and a new flag was adopted. The flag was a plain green field with two five-pointed white stars, one top right and one bottom left, and the French tricolour in the top left. The stars represent British and French Togoland.

When the area became closer to independence in 1958 the French tricolour was removed from the flag. The ratio was 3:5.

In 1960 Togo gained full independence from Britain and France and a new flag was adopted. The new flag featured five yellow and green stripes with a red square and white five-pointed star in the top left corner. Taking the colours of the Pan African movement, the red symbolises the bloodshed in the fight for independence, the green represents the agriculture, the yellow the riches of the land and the white star represents hope.

The Coat of Arms of Togo

The Coat of Arms of Togo was two years after Togo gained independence. It is a white green-bordered oval inside of which is a golden shield with the letters ‘RT’ referencing République Togolaise. At either side is a lion with bow and arrow. Above are the national flags with ribbons stating “WORK, LIBERTY, HOMELAND”.

The Air Force Roundel of Togo

The Air Force Roundel of Togo is a yellow-bordered circle made up of the national flag.
