Flags of the World | Togo

The flag of Togo uses the popular pan-African colors of Ethiopia: Green, gold (yellow) and red.  These colors are now found on the national flags of many African nations. The first African state to adopt a red, gold and green flag upon independence was Ghana in 1957.

Except for a brief period of occupation by Italy under the Fascists, Ethiopia remained outside European control during the colonial era. As a result, the country drew the admiration of many newly independent states in Africa.
