CAPE VERDE FLAG - Meaning of the new flag

The rectangle of the Cape Verde flag is seen as a large blue field symbolizing the infinite space of the sea and sky. The ten yellow stars represent the 10 islands. The circle of the stars symbolizes the Cape Verdean Nation and its unity. The circle in a certain sense, is the world to which we are opened and that is opened to us; is the line of horizon which limits our freedom, that is the world map, but is also the mariner’s compass and the helm of the navigators. The strips are the road to the construction of the country. The blue is the sea and the sky. The white is the peace we want. The red is our effort.

History of Cape Verde flags

A new flag was adopted on 22 Sep 1992, when Cape Verde finally severed its links with Guinea-Bissau. The new flag (as above) has 10 stars representing the islands, set in a blue sea. Prior to 1992, the similarity between the two nations’ flags was explained by the fact that both were derived from the flag of the Partido Africano da Independência da Guiné e Cabo Verde (P.A.I.G.C.), the liberation movement which succeeded in gaining independence for both countries (Guinea-Bissau in 1974, Cape Verde in 1975). P.A.I.G.C.’s aim had been that the two nations should unite, but this merger was scotched in 1980 by a military coup in Guinea-Bissau.

The flag of Cape Verde from 1975-1992. With an added shell and maize wreath. The red, yellow, and green are Pan-African colors, with the black star standing for black Africa; the shell represents fishers and the corn farmers.
