The Flag of the Togolese Republic is a flag with five equal horizontal bands with in the left corner a conton and a star. The used colors in the flag are red, green, yellow, white. The proportion of the Togolese flag is 1:1.618. The Flag of Togo was adopted in 1960.
The flag was designed by artist Paul Ahyi and approximates a golden rectangle closely. Ahyi (January 15, 1930 – January 4, 2010) was regarded as among the greatest of African artists of his generation. Born in Togo, Ahyi graduated from the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1959 and returned to Togo. He designed the flag of Togo while working on other contemporary works. The flag was adopted on April 28, 1960 and is still in use. During France’s rule over Togo from 1957 to 1958, the flag of French Togo was used. After Togo’s independence, the first Flag of Togo was used from 1958 to 1960.
