Anthem Lyrics

Liberté



Peuple d'Afrique!


Le Passé historique!


Que chante l'hymne de la Guinée fière et jeune


Illustre epopée de nos frères


Morts au champ d'honneur en libérant l'Afrique!


Le peuple de Guinée prêchant l'unité


Appelle l'Afrique.


Liberté! C'est la voix d'un peuple


Qui appelle tous ses frères a se retrouver.


Liberté! C'est la voix d'un peuple


Qui appelle tous ses frères de la grande Afrique.


Bâtissons l'unité africaine dans l'indépendance retrouvée.

Anthem Lyrics English

People of Africa!


The historic past!


Sing the hymn of a Guinea proud and young


Illustrious epic of our brothers


Who died on the field of honour while liberating Africa!


The people of Guinea, preaching Unity,


Call to Africa.


Liberty! The voice of a people


Who call all her brothers to find their way again.


Liberty! The voice of a people


Who call all her brothers of a great Africa.


Let us build African Unity in a newly found independence!

Guinea Flag

Guinea Flag

Flag History The first French colony to achieve independence, Guinea pattered its flag on the French tricolor. Sekou Toure, the first President of Guinea, stated that by choosing the same colors as those of Ghana his country intended to show its dedication to Aftican unity. The colors reflect the national motto “Work, Justice, Solidarity”. The red is the colro of blood and reflects the spirit of sacrifice and hard work, and symbolizes the will for progress. The yellow is the color of the gold of Guinea and of the African sun, which is the source of energy, gernerosity and equality as it shines on everyone. The green is the color of the vegetation, agriculture, the productivity of the peasants and the spirit of solidarity in collective enterprises. Thus the three colors of the flag symbolize the three bases of the republic: labor, justice, and solidarity.
Flag Date of Adoption 10 November 1958
Flag Symbolism three equal vertical bands of red (hoist side), yellow, and green; uses the popular pan-African colors of Ethiopia
