Flags of the Nations: Equatorial Guinea


The flag of Equatorial Guinea was officially adopted on October 12, 1968. The blue triangle represents the sea, the green represents the country's farmland, and red symbolizes the country's independence. A silk cotton tree is centered on a silver shield. (worldatlas.com)

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Equatorial Guinea

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Equatorial Guinea in 2002.

Equatorial Guinea had a population of 797,457 in 2018. That same year, Equatorial Guinea reported 5 Churches of the Nazarene, none of which had been officially organized. Equatorial Guinea has 729 total members.

Located on the Africa Region, Equatorial Guinea is a Phase 1 district. For more information about the Africa Region, visit africanazarene.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
