The flag uses the traditional Pan-African colors, and the tricolor design is adapted from the flag of France. The center stripe is thought to stand for unity as red is the color of unity and the star is referred to as "the star of unity." The yellow stands for the sun and the savannas in the northern part of the country, while the green is for the forests in the southern part of Cameroon.
GMC Flag of the Nations: Cameroon
Thursday, August 8, 2013
Global Ministry Center
Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Cameroon

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Cameroon in 1999.

Cameroon had a population of 20,129,878 in 2012. The country has not yet reported any Churches of the Nazarene.

Cameroon is on the Africa Region. For more information, visit

Note: Flags are not flown at the GMC during inclement weather. If flags are not flown for at least three days during the week, that flag is flown the next week. NCN News only publishes flag articles on weeks when flags are flown at least three days.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
