About the flag

On 1 May 2016, a big flag, vertically divided red-white-black, was found hoisted on a hillside overlooking the village of Dounet. This caused collective hysteria among the population, which feared either a terrorist act or a sacrifice. After having been exorcized by an imam, the flag was taken down by the gendarmerie forces and brought to Mamou, the regional capital located 30 km of Dounet. Most locals rather believe that the flag was indeed a sacrifice imposed to someone by a marabout or a charlatan. - Guinée News, 11 May 2016

Three weeks later, a man contacted the security services to explain the origin of the flag. The flag was indeed a sacrifice committed by his daughter, who lives in Conakry, the national capital, and eagerly seeks a job and a husband. - Le Guinéen, 22 May 2016
