Benin Flag | National Flag of Benin

Benin’s flag was officially adopted on November 16, 1959.The color green recalls hope and revival, red the courage of ancestors, and yellow the ongoing preservation of the country’s wealth.These colors emphasize the solidarity with the other African nations. In 1975, the Marxist government came to power in Benin and the country was renamed to the Republic of Dahomey. In these times, a green flag with a red star in the upper left corner was used. After the fall of the regime in 1990, the previous flag has been readopted.
