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.
🧵 Double Sided Flags are three layers, two art layers sandwiching a blackout fabric in between complete with two grommets on the hoist edge. These flags are heavier than the single sided and take more wind to get going. Perfect for flag pole display.
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.
Purchased this flag to fly at our home for Black History Month! I've become such a flag nerd over the last couple of years because of Flags For Good. We have the VOTE flag, Wisconsin better state flag, Wisconsin Pride better state flag, & Juneteenth flag as well and bought my husband the Progress Pride flag for his office at our local university. He works in sustainability so I've been eyeing up the climate/eco related flags too. Our home is on a busy street so I hope it causes people to pause, reflect or do some research. THANK YOU FLAGS FOR GOOD!
We love flying our flag!
