Flag of French Guiana
|Design||Divided diagonally from the upper hoist-side corner to the lower fly-side corner: the upper triangle is green and the lower triangle is yellow. A red five-point star is charged in the center of the flag.|
On 29 January 2010, the General Council (departmental council) of the overseas department of French Guiana unilaterally adopted a flag for the department of French Guiana. This has not been recognized by the superior regional council. Moreover, only the French flag is officially recognized by the French constitution as the national flag.
The flag is identical with the one of pro-independence trade union UGT and also MDES. 
Green represents the forests, yellow represents gold and other minerals of the region, while the red star represents socialism.
