Untitled[edit]

I've removed the Guyanese flag from this list; after all, the country has strong racial tensions, and the black population is only 30% of the country. Would they really adopt the Pan-African colors for their flag 1966? Neither the article on the flag of Guyana, nor a book of mine on flags, mention any relation to the Pan-African colours. Any comments? Picaroon9288|ta co 14:38, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

I personally think a new category should be created for countries like jamaica, Dominica ,St Kitts etc which are not located in Africa but have African descended populations. I think that they should be seperated from countries actually located in Africa. Comments ? Xerex 15:11, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

theres not enough information needed on the spanish flag just makes no sense

Citations and references[edit]

This page is really hurting for cites. I am going to remove Grenada from this list unless someone can find a decent cite that identifies this flag as intentionally Pan-African, as opposed to coincidentally. -SigPig |SEND - OVER 21:13, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

I am unsure as to why Granada is mentioned in the article, while both the modern flag of the city and the medieval flag both include red green yellow and black, it makes little sense to suggest a connection with Pan-Africanism. Moorish Spain predates the idea of Pan-Africanism by almost 600 years, and it is doubtful that a modern European city would have much interest in it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.11.79.62 (talk) 19:39, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Could we get a cite that the Aboriginal flag is inspired by the Pan-African colours? Xt828 (talk) 09:05, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Chad[edit]

I sure Chad was a mix between a Guinea's flag and France's flag, it should be included. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.105.49.85 (talk)
