About This Item
Patch of flag of Ivory Coast. The flag of Ivory Coast (French: Drapeau de la Côte d'Ivoire) features three equal vertical bands of orange (hoist side), white, and green.
After independence, the Côte d'Ivoire formed a loose alliance of West African states. The flags of these states were influenced both by the Pan-African colours first used by Ghana, and also by the model of the French Tricolour, the flag of the former colonial power. The colours chosen for the Côte d'Ivoire's flag were also used by Niger, with which the Côte d'Ivoire had an alliance. They were intended to symbolize the following: the orange color stands for the land, the savannah found in the northern part and its fertility, the white represents peace, and the green represents hope and also the forest of the southern part of the country. The flag was adopted in 1959, just prior to independence.
