When Grenada finally gained full independence in 1974 a completely new flag was adopted. It features Two triangles of yellow and green, a thick red border and six gold five-pointed stars with a red disc and gold star in the centre with a nutmeg pod on the left side. The red colour stands for vitality, green for the agriculture, yellow for wisdom. The six stars on the border represents the six parishes and the red disk in the centre is the capital.
