Red, Yellow, & Green Hope Bracelet
This beaded bracelet features the word ‘HOPE’ surrounded by the red, yellow, and green colors that are used by many nations associated with Africa. The red, yellow, and green that people often identify with African countries and cultures became popular when newly independent Africa countries borrowed the color scheme of the Ethiopian flag to honor Ethiopia’s resistance against foreign occupation and colonization. The red is often thought to mean strength (or the blood of warriors), the yellow symbolizes peace or hope, and the green symbolizes the rich land. The ‘HOPE’ speaks to the inherent and abundant hope in African countries because of the motivated, intelligent local people that are driving progress in their communities across the continent.
The bracelet is set on a leather strap and snaps together with a metal button. As with all of Hopeful Africa’s beaded artifacts, this bracelet was designed by our friend Shangaman. Comes in three sizes and two different color schemes: black background for the word ‘HOPE’ and a red, yellow, and green background, shown in pictures.
