Everybody Welcome Back to flag Fan Friday Hope you like the ivory Coast Episode I still Can’t believe That fact About Michael Jackson it Literally Happened and it also happened again in 2013 as his son was inaugurated as a prince via Skype I Love Africa Only Stuff Like That Can Happen and it’s not even Shocking Anyway Today We covered the ivorian Flag in The Coat of Arms so Without Further Ado? so before We get Into this one Thing I really Wanted to talk about but I didn’t have Time in the Ivory coast Episode was the legend? Of Queen Polk who She was Queen of the bowels a people which Make Up one of the largest tribes in the Ivory Coast According to legend A long Time Ago her and her People Were Fleeing from the Ashanti People in Ghana as they Approached the kuhmo a river They Were Told that in Order to cross you must Sacrifice your most prized Possession for Queen Puku that Was her son so According to legend again she Had to Throw her son Into the River and When that happened Hippos Rose Up and They, were Allowed to cross the river after the Crossing all she could Say Was ballet which Means the Child is dead and that’s how the tribe Gets Their Name yeah that and I Also wanted to Talk About how a bichon House like this beautifully the most Developed Skyline in all of west Africa Anyway The Flag The flag of the ivory Coast is A vertical tricolour of orange White and Green yes it is the exact Mirror Image of The Ireland Flag Adopted in 1959 The Flag was modeled After the french Tricolour and Later Inspired the flag of New Year the orange Stands for the Savannas Found in The North of the Country the White stands for Peace and the green Stands for the Force of the south and Hope except for the Time That They’re under The french Empire This is the first and Only Flag that they have ever Had Also it might be important to note that this Is One of the only Few Flags in The Region that Does not Utilize the pan Africanist Movement Colors of Red Black and Green Or red Golden Green Some Say it might have to do with the fact that they Didn’t want to Follow in the Lead of ghana who kind of Started it all even Though they Were inspired Off of Ethiopia but that’s Just kind of a joke Maybe Anyway Moving on the Coat of Arms the image Contains A Green Shield With the Head of Their national Animal the African elephant Which was Symbolically Important for the ivory Trade that they used to be A part of Hence Where They got Their Name Behind the Shield Lies a rising sun Symbolizing the New Beginning on the Sides Two golden Palm Trees and A golden Banner Below With the Phrase the publique Dakota Wow which i’m Sure you need no Translation?

  1. little early this time because I uploaded this moments before leaving to get on a plane to London. Ken is already almost done with doing the graphics for the Jamaica episode as we speak and I have like 3 days to figure out how to get to Paris because I waited too long and now Eurostar trips are like $500 (HELL NO). Oh yeah and enjoy learning and stuff or whatever in this video

  2. Let's thank the American troops for their service in promoting US imperialism across the globe, murdering thousands and putting the countries' wealth under direct American influence.
    You have an international audience, Barby. Try and think about that.

  9. When I was in junior high school and we were learning about the various countries and their capitals (which I diligently learned all of, just in time for the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, and Czechoslovakia to add some new ones I didn't get around to learning much later, but that's another story), a classmate joked that the Ivory Coast's main export should be soap, because they were named after two brands of it.

  10. It's actually pronounced as BAY – BA – YIN. (You pronounce the A as Ah like in the word cat). Hope you introduce this in the Philippines episode.

  22. As a baoule from Ivory Coast, I can say it's mostly pretty accurate!! However, Queen Pokou actually said "baouli" that became baoule later on with time.

  23. The flag might make people think that Ivory Coast is the only Irish country in Africa. Imagine if that was true, leave a reply if you know what that would have been like.
