    Cape Verde Flag history
    The original national flag of Cape Verde was introduced on independence in 1975, and was based on the flag of the Partido Africano para a IndependĂȘncia da GuinĂ© e Cabo Verde (PAIGC). It used the common African colours of red, green and yellow, and was identical to the flag of Guinea-Bissau except for the proportions and the charge in the hoist-side stripe. Their similarity evoked the plans to unite both countries, which, however, were abandoned shortly after independence. Guinea-Bissau gained independence on 10 September 1974.
