The flag of Grenada has a red rectangle with stars around the outside, green triangles on the left and right, yellow triangles on top and bottom.
On the left side is a picture of a nutmeg plant, and in the middle is a red circle with a yellow star.
Green is for the plants, yellow is for the sun, red is for courage.
The green, yellow and red are also the Pan-African colors that help bring people from all nations together.
Yellow stars are for the different areas in the country, and the nutmeg is because there are lots of nutmegs grown in the country.
