2. History

Afore unthirldom frae Portugal, Cape Verde did no hae a offeecial banner, an the Portuguese naitional banner wis uised. In the late 1960s, a banner for the Portuguese owerseas province o Cape Verde wis proposed, consistin o the banner o Portugal defacit wi the shield frae the provincial airms in the lawer flee. Housomeivver, this banner wis niver adoptit.

The oreeginal naitional banner o Cape Verde wis introducit on unthirldom in 1975, an wis based on the banner o the Partido Africano para a Independência da Guiné e Cabo Verde PAIGC. It uised the common African colours o reid, green an yellae, an wis identical tae the Banner o Guinea-Bissau except for the chairge in the hoist-side stripe. Thair similarity evokit the plans tae unite baith kintras, which, housomeivver, wur abandoned shortly efter unthirldom. Guinea-Bissau gained unthirldom on 10 September 1974.
