|Flag of São Tomé and Príncipe|
|Adopted||November 5, 1975 |
|Designed by||Manuel Pinto da Costa? |
The flag of São Tomé and Príncipe consists of three horizontal stripes alternating green and yellow. The yellow stripe, in the centre, is 50% thicker than the two equal green stripes. On the hoist is a red isosceles right pile. In the centre of the yellow stripe are two equal black five-pointed stars in a row.
The flag uses the Pan-African colours. The two black five-pointed stars represent the two main islands of São Tomé and Príncipe. Can you guess which ones? The red pile represents the struggle for independence. 
- The flag was adopted after the country's independence from Portugal.
