Gambia Flag

For The Gambia Our Homeland

It was adopted before independence in 1965 after an international competition to construct a state anthem and flag.

"It's the combination of government and people working together in unity and peace, that still leads us to achieve the success we all want. We have to stand together as one people with one purpose and step forward as one country. For if we focus on achieving our personal goals without having our community in mind, then we will fail.
