Facts about the flag:
The flag of Benin was originally adopted on November 16, 1959, and consists of three rectangular fields, two horizontal ones in the colors red and yellow on the outer part of the flag, and one vertical green field on the inner border.
The colors of the flag are traditional Pan-African colors, which symbolize African unity. The red color symbolizes courage, the yellow color wealth and green symbolizes hope.
In 1975, the flag was replaced when the land also changed its name to Dahomey. On August 1, 1990, the original flag was reinstated and the land took back its old name as the connection with the Marxist regime was abolished. The flag's proportions are 2:3.
