The Design: The Pan-African flag, also known as the Afro-American flag, Black Liberation flag, UNIA flag, and various other names, is a tri-color flag consisting of three equal horizontal bands of red, black and green (from top down respectively). Designed by famous black nationalist, Marcus Garvey.
The UNIA states the meanings of the colors:
- Red: the blood that unites all people of Black African ancestry, and shed for liberation;
- Black: black people whose existence as a nation, though not a nation-state, is affirmed by the existence of the flag; and
- Green: the abundant natural wealth of Africa.
🧵 Single Sided Flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D) with two grommets on the hoist edge. In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
🏳️ Each flag is folded by hand on our dining room table and ready to be used on a flag pole, boat, hung on a wall, or to proudly march with.
🖨 ↩️ We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through. If you want a double-sided flag, contact us!
