The colors are Black for our people, red for our blood that was shed through imperialism, oppression, domination, and the enslavement. The green for the fertility and respect for our lands and the yellow for our sunshine and hope. The chains represent the physical and spiritual shackling of our peoples and the star symbolizes the North Star that guided enslaved peoples to your Turtle Island. The border represents the land on which we stand.
