Description of the flag

The provincial flag, as seen during the 2016 inauguration of the President of Gabon, is white with the provincial coat-of-arms occupying 4/5 of the height in the centre.

The blue / azure of the field and the tarpon fishes (Megalops atlanticus) represent the sea front of the province, and the wavy partition symbolizes the Nyanga River.  The serrated cotice, like a saw blade, recalls logging. The chief of gold recalls the savannah, the lion at the top means: "I guard the border".
