The Grenada flag was officially adopted on February 7th, 1974 after the country had gained independence from the United Kingdom. Its proportion is 3:5 and it was designed by Anthony C. George. The design has seven stars. The six on the border represent each of the nation’s six parishes. The star in the middle represents the capital.

The Grenada flag has a symbol on its left side that is a nutmeg, one of the nation’s chief crops (it was once known as The Spice Island). The red, gold, and green colors represent the nation’s African roots. The nation had two previous colonial flags (one from 1875–1903 and one from 1904-1974). Both featured the Union Jack.

The naval ensign is much different from the national flag. The Grenada flag is part of the island nation of the South Caribbean. Tourism is an important part of the nation’s economy.

The largest city and capital city is St. George’s. The Grenada flag belongs to a nation whose national anthem or song is titled “Hail Grenada”. Like many other nations, the royal anthem is “God Save The Queen”. The national motto or slogan is “Ever Conscious of God We Aspire, Build and Advance as One People”. The currency used is the East Caribbean dollar.
