The History of the Liberian Flag

The Liberian flag was first hoisted on August 24, 1847, nearly one month after the declaration of independence on July 26, after it was hand woven by seven Liberian women headed by Madam Susannah Lewis.

The others who contributed to the making of the Liberian flag includes: Sarah Draper, a widow; who was the first female to hold “Land Title” in Liberia;

Mary L. Hunter from South Carolina, who was married to a Blacksmith;

Rachel Johnson, her son Hilary R.W. Johnson became the eleventh (11th) President of Liberia; he was the first Liberian President born in Africa;

Matilda Newport, who was previously known as Matilda Spencer; the lady who lit the cannon at the battle of Fort Hill in Monrovia;

J.B. Russwurm, Mrs. Russwurm was from Baltimore; she was married to John Russwurm, who was Governor of Maryland in Africa; the Maryland Colony in Cape Palmas, which was annexed to the Republic of Liberia in 1857; and

Collinete Teage Ellis from Virginia, who migrated to Liberia at the age of 15. Her brother Hilary Teage also served on the Constitution Committee.

The flag has 11 stripes - red and white - with a single star in a blue field, signifying the only independent republic on the continent of Africa at the time.

The original Flag was made from homespun cotton and silk cotton from cotton trees in Liberia. The women were required to confer with the Constitution Committee as instructed by “then” Governor Joseph Jenkins Roberts.

Analysis on Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai Debate Performance: The VP biggest mistake during the Presidential Debate

The team that worked on Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai debate talking points did him a huge disservice. Instead of finding a way to embrace some of the accomplishments record of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf administration, VP Boakai ran away from the President as fast as his legs could carry him. Instead of claiming some of the successes and proudly inform the Liberian people during the debate that – together he and the president provided leadership, vision, and restored much needed HOPE to the Liberian people devastated by nearly 2 decades of destruction of lives and property, he decided to tell the Liberian people that the remarkable magnanimous and diligent ‘sports car’ was parked in the garage for years.

No Mr. Vice President, you and the President worked tirelessly to leave behind Liberia’s turbulent past and pursue a future of hope, transparency, accountability and opportunity. Mr. Vice President, you could have proudly informed the Liberian people that prior to 2006, Liberia’s external debt stood at $4.9 billion dollars. Together you and the President, with help from our international friends were able to cancel $4.9 billion of debt by reaching the completion point of the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative, with financial reforms approved by the World Bank and IMF. In doing so, your government was able to have greater resources available for investment in public services and poverty reduction. Yes Mr. Vice President, you and President accomplished a lot for the Liberian people - The roads to Nimba and Grand Bassa Counties were paved, thus reducing traveling time by many hours, and ensuring farmers less time to bring their goods market.

Campaign Posters, who has the most?

It's campaign time in Liberia and the top 6 presidential candidates are displaying mega billboards, posters and fliers along major roadways, at popular intersections and on buildings and fences around the city.

Which Presidential candidate has the most number of campaign posters around the city? We didn't count, but Papa Urey is everywhere, next is Joe Boikai, followed by Weah Howard-Taylor, then Brumskine and Cummings, followed by Mills Jones.

Everyone is promising change, but few are outlining what their brand of change entails with the exception of Mills Jones, whose new mega billboard, displayed infront of MOVEE Campaign Headquarters, can best be described as a thesis directed at the youth.

While Weah Howard-Taylor is confusing people with their Change for Hope, Papa Urey says Let's get Liberia Working. Brumskine and Karnwea says Change is Coming. Cummings and Sulenteh says Real Change You Can Trust. Boikai says "Think Liberia, Love Liberia, Build Liberia" and Mills Jones other poster says "Poverty is not our destiny".
