  • Hey, geograpeeps. Welcome back to Flag / Fan Friday. Hope you like the Guyana episode.

  • Guyana is so cool because it's like a little mini, India in South America,

  • and the flag is pretty cool too, and you'll see why in a sec.

  • So without further ado,

  • Okay, so before we jump in. I just want to say a very quick thank you to all of the

  • Irish, French, Italian and Swiss Geograpeeps

  • that have contacted me for the heritage trip that me and my mom are going to take at the end of this year.

  • I can't wait to meet some of you guys and I'll be hitting you back at the beginning of June

  • after I finished the Haiti episode okay, cool?

  • All right, enough talk. Let's jump in.

  • The flag of Guyana otherwise known as the 'Golden arrow' is a green banner with two triangles protruding to the right from the left hoist side.

  • The Longer Gold One with a white outline reaches all the way to the edge of the right side

  • and the smaller one with a black outline Inside only juts out to about a third of the way

  • The colors are symbolic.

  • The green represents agriculture and forests, the white for the rivers and water

  • the gold for mineral wealth and black for Endurance.

  • Whereas the red stands for...

  • Yeah, sorry I know you're waiting for the bloodshed

  • but Guyana's independence actually wasn't that bloody. You'll just have to wait for the next one.

  • Also keep in mind prior to independence,

  • they used a variety of Union Jack Corner box flags with a Emblem

  • with A 19th century sea vessel and now for the coat-of-arms.

  • The coat-of-Arms includes a crest made of an Amerindian headdress known as Cacique's crown,

  • symbolizing the indigenous people, two diamonds at the sides of the headdress

  • representing the mining industry, a helmet and two Jaguars as supporters holding a pickaxe,

  • sugarcane and a stock of rice symbolizing Guyana's mining sugar and rice industries.

  • There's also a shield decorated with the Victoria Amazonica Lily, Guyana's national flower,

  • Three Blue Wavy lines representing the three main Rivers of Guyana and the National bird, the canje pheasant.

  • At the bottom on a scroll lies the National Motto:

  • "One people, One nation, One Destiny".

  • Now any coat of arms with Jaguars on it is all right in my book. Alright. So that's about it.
