Debre Berhane Selassie

Debre Berhan Selassie an easy stroll 2km northeast of town. Despite its walls hosting the nation’s most vibrant ecclesiastical artwork, it’s the ceiling that captures most visitors’ imaginations. Think of Mona Lisa’s smile and multiply it 104 times!

Pan African Colors

 

First Used in the flag of   ETHIOPIA

Two different sets of three colors are referred to as the Pan-African colors: the green, gold, and red first used in the flag of Ethiopia; and the red, black, and green adopted by the American-based Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA). As such, they are used in flags and other emblems to represent Pan-Africanism, African identity, or blacks as a race.

Green, gold, and red are now found on the national flags of many African nations. They originate in Ethiopia, from where they also have relevance for the Rastafari movement.

Ethiopia remained outside European control during the colonial era, and was therefore admired by many newly-independent African states. The adoption of the Ethiopian national colors was a consequence of this. The first African state to adopt red, gold and green for her flag upon independence was Ghana in 1957.

The UNIA constitution defines red, black, and green as the Pan-African colors: "red representing the noble blood that unites all people of African ancestry, the color black for the people, green for the rich land of Africa. The UNIA flag was 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.
