ⓘ Banner o Nigerie

The Banner o Nigerie wis designed in 1959 an first offeecially hoistit on October 1, 1960. The uniquely sea-green baunds represent the forests an abundant naitural weel o Nigerie while the white baund represents peace.

The naitional banner is an adaptation o the winnin entry in a competeetion held in 1959. The oreeginal haed a reid sun wi streamin rays placed at the tap o the white stripe. This wis removed bi the judges an the banner haes no been altered syne. Lik ither kintras, Nigerie haes special ensigns for ceevil an naval vessels. Some o its states an aa hae banners. The designer o the naitional banner wis a student, Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi. He hailed frae Owu in Abeokuta, Ogun State. Akinkunmi wis a student o Norwich Technical College, Ingland when he saw the advertisement in the naitional daily that entries wur bein acceptit for the design o a new naitional banner. Akinkunmi quickly prepared his entry an sent it tae Lagos whaur it wis eventually picked in 1958 as the best an the banner wis uised tae celebrate an independent Nigerie on October 1, 1960; when the Union Banner o the Unitit Kinrick o Great Breetain an Northren Ireland wis lowered for the Nigerian banner tae tak its place on the flagpole.

Akinkunmi haes received numerous awairds frae baith individuals an organisations, an presently lives in Ibadan.
