It was originally a [[UsefulNotes/{{Portugal}} Portuguese]] colony, until it was given to Spain in exchange of Spanish territory in America. Thatís right, people in Equatorial Guinea speak Spanish. That turns them almost into outcasts in the continent. In their defense, though, they also speak French.

->The green, white and red stripes symbolizes the jungles, peace, and Equatorial Guinea's struggle for independence, respectively. At the hoist side is the blue triangle of the Atlantic Ocean. At the center is the coat-of-arms, showing a shield containing a silk cotton tree, the colonial symbol of Río Muni, as the mainland was then called; above it are six stars, symbolizing Río Muni and the islands of Bioko (site of the capital Malabo), Annobón, Corisco, Elobey Chico and Elobey Grande; and below is a scroll which reads "Unidade, Paz, Justicia", Portuguese for "Unity, Peace, Justice".

* The island of Bioko appears a lot in ''TheIlluminatusTrilogy''. Referred to as "Fernando Poo", a revolution there is very nearly the flashpoint for WorldWarThree.

In spite of having oil deposits, the country is rather poor. [[SarcasmMode Maybe, just maybe]], it has something to do with the leadersí kleptomaniac ways. Especially considering Obiang is filthy rich. Recently the country has joined the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Community_of_Portuguese_Language_Countries Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP)]], which happened only when Portugal accepted their entrance after making a lot of protests. The reason why the country is accepted is due mostly to oil (of which has plenty to export) and other economic benefits.
