Seven Principles

The two optoinal, or supplementary symbols are the Nguzo Saba (seven principles) usually printed in large letters for all to see and the Bendera ya Taifa (The national flag or standard). The Bendera is the black, red, and green flag given to us by the father of the modern Black nationalist movement, Marcus Garvey. Red was for the blood our people shed. Green was for hope and is the color of the Motherland, and black was for the face of our people.
