Nigerian Flag
Nigeria gained independence from Britain on October 1, 1960 and the flag was adopted to represent our freedom from slavery and to also serve as a symbol of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The Flag is very simple in design, yet very powerful. It was designed by Taiwo Akinkunmi in 1958, who was then, a student, but the flag was first hoisted on the day of independence.

It comprises of three equal parts, two outer green colored sections and a middle white section. The green color represents agriculture while the white color depicts unity and peace.
