The Nigerian flag was adopted on October 1, 1960, the same day that it gained independence from Britain. The flag design was chosen as a result of a national contest. The winning design was created by Taiwo Akinkunmi and was chosen from almost 3,000 entries. The flag has three vertical stripes. The outer stripes are both green, which represents the agriculture and plentiful vegetation of the county. The middle white stripe symbolizes the desire for peace and unity in the country. Nigerian laws prohibit other flags to be flown above the Nigerian flag and flags that are torn or soiled cannot be displayed.
