The flag of French Guiana, an overseas region and department of France located in South America, is the French flag.

On 29 January 2010, the general council (departmental council) of the overseas department of French Guiana unilaterally adopted a flag for the department of French Guiana. This was not recognized by the superior regional council. Both councils were disbanded in late 2015 and replaced by the French Guiana Assembly within the framework of the new Territorial Collectivity of French Guiana.[citation needed] Moreover, only the French flag is officially recognized by the French constitution as the national flag.
