Senegal Flag Meaning & History

In 1958, when Senegal was part of the French Empire, the region was represented by a green flag with a yellow star in the center. This flag was replaced when the modern territories of Senegal and Mali were merged to create the Mali Federation in 1959. The new design was a vertical green, yellow, and red tricolor with a simplified drawing of a person in the center, known as a kanaga. 

The Federation gained independence in 1960, and the two territories soon split into the nations of Senegal and Mali. Senegal kept the same flag design but replaced the kanaga with a green star. 

The green stripe represents the majority religion of Islam, the yellow is for economic and artistic prosperity, and the red is for sacrifice. These colors are also commonly associated with Pan-Africanism. The green star is inspired by the religion of the Serer people, in which the star symbolizes the universe and destiny.

Senegal Flag vs Cameroon Flag

The flag of Cameroon is very similar to that of Senegal, but it swaps the order of the red and yellow stripes and uses a smaller yellow star instead. Many countries in the region that were once part of the French Empire adopted a tricolor design using the Pan-African colors as their national flag, including Guinea and Mali.
