Last week our guest speaker was Cheryl Griffin - who spoke of her visits and support with fundraising for Kenya. Cheryl told us so many facts about Kenya it was extremely interesting. Kenya gained independence in December 1963 and that was when their flag was adopted
One of the most interesting I thought was regarding the colours of the flag and why they were chosen;
  • Green - colour of leaf of the tea they import
  • Red - colour of blood spilled to gain independence
  • Black - colour of their native skin
  • White - colour of peace
