Panafrican color

Redirected from Red, black and green

According to the UNIA, the panafrican colors are red, black, and green, "red representing the noble blood that unites all people of African ancestry, the color black for black people whose dignity is upheld by the existence of the flag, green for the abundant natural wealth of the Motherland, Africa". Designated the official colors of the African Race by the UNIA at its convention in Madison Square Garden on August 13, 1920 in New York City.

Other sources describe red, gold, and green as being the three panafrican colors.
