Upper Demerara-Upper Berbice - Region No. 10
The inland region of Upper Demerara-Upper Berbice contains the largest portion of the hilly sand and clay area. Guyana's principal bauxite deposits are found in the White Sands area. The 39,106 people of this 'bauxite region' work mainly with bauxite companies Linmine (at Linden and Ituni) and Bermine (at Everton and Kwakwani). The extracted bauxite is exported to make aluminum.

A small portion of the Iwokrama Rainforest Project is located in this Region. Cattle-rearing and forestry are also done on very small scales.

Flag Concept

Bauxite is what Region 10 has been well known for so the plant or bauxite mining site will be the symbol. The colours will be yellow because of the mining history of the region and black for the strength of the people of that Region.
