Image sourced from Heraldry of the World websiteUnder the regime of Francisco Marcia Nguema between 1973 and 1979 different Arms were in use which also featured on the national flag.
During the Nguema period the coat of arms found on the state and war flags and ensigns
of Equatorial Guinea were changed. The Arms featured
a combination of different tools and swords with a cock over all. The
amended national motto appeared on two stripes, Trabajo (work), and Unitad, Paz, Justicia (Unity, Peace, Justice)
below, in the middle of the arms.
This flag is shown in Flags and Arms across the World by Whitney Smith (1980)
[smi80] with the proportions of 5:8~ (whereas
the 1968 flag was 2:3~).
