History

The flag was designed by Anthony C. George of Soubise in Saint Andrew Parish. [0]

Meaning

The red colour of the flag stands for courage and vitality, gold for wisdom and warmth, and green for vegetation and agriculture. The six stars in the red border represent the country's six parishes, with the middle star, encircled by a red disk, representing Carriacou and Petite Martinique. The symbol in the hoist represents a clove of nutmeg, one of the principal crops of Grenada. It also represents a link to Grenada's former name, which was the "Isle of Spice". [0]
