Bendera (The Flag)
The colors of the Kwanzaa flag are colors of the Organization Us, black, red and green - black for the people, red for their struggle, and green for the future that comes from their struggle.
The Bendera is based on the national flag given to us by the Hon. Marcus Garvey, with slight adjustments in order and interpretation of the
colors made in the 1960s along with many African countries.
We put Black because, in fact, the people come first, then Red for the struggle which is waged on by and for the people,
and finally, Green, which is for the people's future which comes out of their struggle. The stress and focus here then
is on the people. They are the priority and thus are placed first.
Nguzo Saba Poster
The Nguzo Saba poster or some form of the written Nguzo Saba should always be a part of the Kwanzaa set.
For it is these Seven Principles which give Kwanzaa its core and seven days of cultural focus.
