Presentation of the county

Gbarpolu County was created in 2001, by detaching from Grand Cape Mount County five of its ten districts (Belleh, Bokomu, Bopolu, Gbarma, and Kongba).

About the flag

The flag is shown in a 2008 $25 Liberian postage stamp, in a detailed, flat representation. It is a red flag with the usual national flag on the upper hoist (canton) and showing on the upper fly area a white table cut diamond in profile with dark blue (or black) holding lines and brightness ticks (?); at the lower fly a tree in na´ve style, with brown trunk and green canopy.

Variant design on 2008 stamp

2008 flag variant image by António Martins, 31 August 2008

At this website, the flag image in the $25 2008 stamp seems to use a lighter shade of red for the stripes of the canton, and a darker one for the background; it is also slightly wider than 2:3 and the size of the canton larger than is is usually shown for Liberian county flags.

I just found a Gbarpolu county flag on a different color background and a slightly different design on an official document of the Gbarpolu County Development Committee:
