Presentation of the county

Sino dropped its final -e (old form Sinoe).
Robert Wheelock, 07 Jan 2000

The spelling "Sino" seems to have scarce use in current English material.

Description of the flag

A white flag with with a thin green cross throughout on the upper hoist canton, as usual, the national flag.
António Martins, 01 Sep 2008

White and green correspond to purity and tropical forests.
Željko Heimer, 08 Jan 2000, quoting from [smi75b]

The image above was based probably on [smi75b] or some such source, and agrees with the $1 1990 postage stamp issued by Liberia, but not with its more recent issuing, the $30 2008 stamp.

The $40 2008 stamp, shows the national flag in the canton much larger than in [smi75b] (image above), filling much more the upper hoist quadrant.
