Flags of the Nations: Senegal

Flags of the Nations: Senegal

by | 14 May, 2018
The Senegal flag is a vertical tricolour of green, yellow, and red with a green star at the center. Red, yellow, and green are the official Pan-African colors, and the center star is symbolic of hope and unity.

Since 1 September 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: Senegal

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Senegal in 1988.

Senegal had a population of 14,668,522 in 2017. That same year, Senegal reported eight Churches of the Nazarene, two of which had been officially organized. Senegal has 367 total members.

Senegal is a Phase 1 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.
