Flags of the Nations: Guinea Conakry

Flags of the Nations: Guinea Conakry

by | 18 Mar 2019
The tricolor flag of Guinea Conakry features the Pan-African colors, symbolizing the unity of the African nations. Red symbolizes the blood spilt by the martyrs in the fight for independence. Yellow stands for the abundance of mineral resources, especially gold in the nation, and the bright sun that shines over the land. Green represents the vegetation, forests, and other natural resources in addition to the prosperity and the fertile soils of the nation.

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: Guinea Conakry

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Guinea Conakry in 2009.

Guinea Conakry had a population of 11,855,411 in 2018. That same year, Guinea Conakry reported 10 Churches of the Nazarene, none of which had been officially organized.

Guinea Conakry is a part of the Cote d’Ivoire South District, a Phase 2 district 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.
