De Gullah/Geechee Nation Flag

The Gullah/Geechee Flag represents those sons and daughters of Africa who were forced to come to America in ships of pain, for a life of servitude and death.

For more than three hundred years the Anointed People of the African Sun were auction off to the highest bidder torn away from tribal and family ties, systematically deprived of ancient African names, physically and mentally brutalized in both body and soul.
