National Flag

Cote d'Ivoire Flag

The national flag, from left to right, has three orange, white and green vertical stripes: orange for the savannah, white for the unity of north and south and green for the forests in the south.

History

In the 11th century, the Senu Fu Palace was built in the north Georgia town for the trade centers in Africa. In the 15th century, Portuguese, Dutch and French colonialists invaded in succession. It became an autonomous colony in 1895. In December 1958, it was pronounced a "French community" in the "autonomous republic." On August 7, 1960, it became independent, but still remained in the "French community".

Economic and Cultural Customs

The economy is dominated by agriculture, mainly potatoes, corn and rice. Its coffee export volume accounts for about one-third of the world's exports. There are palm oil, coconut, cotton, sugar cane, tropical fruits and other cash crops. Its timber production ranks first in Africa. On the south-eastern coast there is a dense growth of mangroves. It also has rich fishery resources, and its canned tuna exports are the highest in the world.

In the 11th century, the Côte d'Ivoire was densely covered by elephant herds. In the 15th century, European colonists came one after another. When the Portuguese colonial invasion started, they exchanged guns for precious ivory, and soon formed an ivory market on the coast, hence the country's name.
The country has many tribes that are good at woodcarving with rare ebony, rosewood and mahogany. They are not only works of art or souvenirs in the eyes of the people of the Côte d'Ivoire; they have also been given some kind of "spiritual" supernatural powers.
