The Nigeria flag features three equally-sized, vertical stripes. The two outer stripes are colored green while the center stripe is colored white. The green stripes are a symbol of the agricultural wealth of Nigeria and its forests. As in many other flags the white color represent unity and peace. The flag was adopted in 1960 on October 1, the day that Nigeria was proclaimed an independent country no longer under the rule of the British Empire. The flag was designed in the year before its adoption by a student named Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi. The original design had the image of a red sun in the center and was adjudged the winner in a competition, beating out 3000 other entries. The judges later removed the sun before it was first announced as the national flag.
Our Nigerian national flags are available for long-term indoor and outdoor displays as well as mini flag displays on desktops and as handheld props. All of our outdoor flags are designed with a strong canvas header and grommets. The flags are available in 4 sizes and can be flown on any of our outdoor flagpoles. Our indoor flags feature a pole sleeve that can accommodate any of our indoor flag poles and come with a sharp fringe which accentuates the glossy nylon finish of the flag.
