Flags of the Nations: Guinea-Bissau


The flag features the traditional Pan-African colors of gold, green, red, and also the Black Star of Africa, which stands for the unity of Africa. Red stands for the blood shed during the struggle for independence, yellow stands for the sun, and green represents hope.

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Guinea-Bissau

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Guinea-Bissau in 2004.

Guinea-Bissau had a population of 1,792,338 in 2017. Guinea-Bissau has not yet reported any Churches of the Nazarene.

Guinea-Bissau is located on the Africa Region. For more information about the Africa Region, visit africanazarene.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
