Flag of Rastafari
« on: March 30, 2008, 03:35:12 PM »

I have been lookin at info about the flag, and have found two different things said about the colour representation.  Both agree red is blood and green is earth/land, but they disagree on the yellow/gold.  One says that it stands for the riches of the world, where the other says it represents the sun.  Which is true?

the red green and gold/yellow flag is the Ethiopian flag.
I have hear that stuff before but I don't really think it matters what others tell you it means. the meaning has to come from you. seen?
InI just know that it symbolizes mother Ethiopia and that's what it means to me.

Hail!

All is true. Our flag is that of Ethiopia. The colours can mean 7 x 70 things.

I take the yellow to mean gold as in wisdom, the most precious thing.

ini know that many a country us the colours to represent freedom and independent prosperity altogether. I man know my home land, Ghana used the colours in the new flag to represent black freedom, prosperity, and Independence. So even if the colours are said to have a specific meaning, they really are just a a symbol of black freedom.

respect. always
