Flags of the Nations: Mali


The flag of Mali is a tricolor made up of green, gold, and red. The green stands for fertility of the land, gold means purity and mineral wealth, and red symbolizes the blood shed for independence from the French.

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Mali

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Mali in 2010.

Mali had a population of 17,467,108 in 2016. Mali has not yet reported any Churches of the Nazarene.

Mali is on the Africa Region. For more information about the Africa Region, visit africanazarene.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
