Nigeria adopted its flag on October 1, 1960, the very day the country gained independence from Great Britain. The simple design was the result of a flag contest, won by Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi, a student who was studying in England at the time.
Nigeria 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.
