Equatorial Guinea flag meaning
This coat of arms on the flag of Equatorial Guinea shows a grey shield with a silk cotton tree known as "God tree", underneath which the first treaty between Portugal and the local ruler was signed. Over the shield, there are six six-pointed golden stars that stand for the mainland and the five main islands. Underneath the shield is the national motto of Equatorial Guinea in Spanish, 'Unidad, Paz, Justicia' (meaning "Unity, Peace, Justice") The flags hoisted at independence did not bear the coat of arms, which was added later.
