The Cameroon flag was officially adopted on May 20th, 1975, and the pattern reflects the French Tricolore.The red symbolizes unity, as well as the centered yellow star. Green represents hope and the yellow prosperity. Those colors combined are the official Pan-African colors.The flag of Cameroon consists of three vertical stripes in traditional pan-African colors – green, red, and yellow. In the middle of the central red stripe, a yellow five-pointed star is placed. As in case of other African states, the design of the flag was inspired by the French flag. Originally, Cameroon was divided into the British and the French part, but in 1961 a Federation was created and two stars representing each of the original colonial powers were added on the flag. After some time, one of the stars was omitted as an expression of unity and integrity of Cameroon. Today, the star is interpreted as a unity, green color evokes forests, red stands for independence, and yellow refers to Cameroon´s savannahs and sun.
