Flag of French Guiana

French Guiana is an overseas department of France, and therefore flies the flag of France.

The French national flag - the tricolore - consists of three vertical bands of equal width, displaying the country's national colors: blue, white and red. The blue band is positioned nearest the flag-staff, the white in the middle, and the red on the outside.

Flags shown in the middle column of the page are regional flags of French Guiana, although the official regional flag depends on who you talk to. The Regional Council in French Guiana declare the white flag as their regional flag. The Departmental Council adopted the green and yellow flag as the official regional flag of French Guiana. This flag has not been accepted by the Regional Council.
