Seychelles Flag - History
The flag of Seychelles consists of five different coloured bands (green, white, red, yellow and blue) starting from one end and diverging towards the other end. The oblique bands symbolize a dynamic new country moving into the future. The colour blue depicts the sky and the sea that surrounds the Seychelles. Yellow is for the sun which gives light and life, red symbolizes the people and their determination to work for the future in unity and love, while the white band represents social justice and harmony. The green depicts the land and natural environment. It was adopted on January 8, 1996. The current flag is the third used by the country since its independence from Britain on June 29, 1976.
