On a serious note: it is time to change this flag! While it still remains the flag we are loyal to under the Alligiance, and as citizens of the Republic.
The LIBERIAN flag, which is a complete replication of the American flag, pays no respect to the Africa of our heritage, the traditions, civilization and its people, and their aspirations -this is indeed a sensitive issue!!!
…And the America we celebrate so much, could not help end our civil war—it took the blood, sweat and deaths of Nigerian, Ghanian, Senegalese, Guinean, Sierra Leonean soldiers to end our conflict.
Folks we are Africans.
President Ellen Johnson in her 12 years in office, just like many other things, played her usual LIP SERVICE, -LIKE THE TRC, AND FIGHTING CORRUPTION, set up a commission to review Liberian symbols that are western and lack Africa characteristics: amongst them the flag—but nothing was done, with tax payers monies wasted yet again on a ‘useless’ commission.
We are Africans, we are not Americans, therefore, folks, it is time to have this flag changed or altered to reflect the African character, aspirations, all of ALL our peoples on the continent!!!
We therefore once called on the Liberian government to review this flag and other symbols of Liberia
Long live LIBERIA our common patrimony..
