The Meaning Of The Biafran Flag by Kamanuozuzu: 6:53am On Sep 16, 2016
The Flag was created by the Biafran Government and raised 30th May, 1967. A Flag consisting of a horizontal tricolour of Red, Black and Green, charged with a golden rising sun over a golden bar, from the Coat of Arms of the old Eastern Province.

The design and colours are based on the Pan-African flag — also known as Black Liberation Flag designed by Marcus Garvey's UNIA (Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League).

The eleven rays of the sun represented the eleven provinces of Biafra. The lowest rays were usually more or less horizontal and the remaining rays spread evenly. The rays were normally long and slender, and usually slightly wavy.

The three Pan-African colors on the flag represent:

Red: the blood that unites all people of Black African ancestry, and shed for liberation;

Black: black people whose existence as a nation, though not a nation-state, is affirmed by the existence of the flag;

Green: the abundant natural wealth of Africa.

Afonja! Your Afonjaland in Kwara( Ilorin) died centuries ago under Afonja, murdered by your Gambari masters,

You should worry more about that and stay out of Igbo issues.

Death is a function of the mind!
Some dead things are more alive than the living

Be guided.
