Demerara-Mahaica - Region No. 4
The Demerara-Mahaica Region extends East of the Demerara River to the Western bank of the Mahaica River, and is predominantly low coastal plain, with a small portion of the hilly sand and clay region further inland.
The population is concentrated along the coastland, particularly in Georgetown, the capital city, which has a population of 56,095. The population of Region Four is 297,162.
Guyana's administrative and commercial activities are concentrated in this Region, especially in and around Georgetown, the main port. There are many sugar estates, such as Diamond, Enmore and La Bonne Intention, owned and controlled by the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GUYSUCO). Some residents of this region work on coconut estates, and many people have their own kitchen gardens. Cattle are reared in small amounts for beef and dairy purposes.

Flag Concept

Since Region 4 is the main economic centre of Guyana, the colours of the flag include red for the zeal and dynamic nature of the people, black for their strength and endurance and the symbol is the iconic Stabroek Clock.
