Green, black, and red are the Garvey colors, after Marcus Garvey, a civil
rights movement leader. If I recall correctly, he promoted the "returning to
Africa" -- if not geographically, at least by "rediscovering" the ancestral
heritage of Afro-Americans.

Antonio Martins, 11 December 1997
The African American Unity Flag (AAUF) was designed by Mr. Vincent W.
Paramore of Miami Florida. Meaning in brief:
The Flag tells the history of a people who originated from Africa and found
themselves in a new land stripped of their Religion, Culture, Language and
History. It also memorializes black heroes and heroines known and unknown. The
AAUF Serves to salute our continued progress for total freedom and equality.
