The Gabon flag was adopted on August 9, 1960, just over a week before Gabon gained its independence from France on August 17, 1960. The Gabon flag pays homage to its geographical position in the world - the yellow stripe symbolizes the equator which runs through Gabon, as well as representing the sun. The blue stripe represents the Atlantic Ocean and the green stripe symbolizes the country's vast agricultural richness.
Gabon flags are 100% SolarMax Nylon, the longest lasting nylon flag material available. You can fly them outdoors for extended periods because they withstand the damaging effects of sun and wind. Made in America.
