The flag of Nigeria has only two colors in it: white and green. It has two strips of green and one white in the middle. This flag design was adopted in 1960. The green color stands for natural resources and richness of Nigerian land, while the white is a symbol of peace.

The author of such a flag design was picked through the competition. His name is Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi and at that time he was just 23 years of age. He was a student and decided to take part in this competition.
