Fact of the Day: Liberia America

The African country Liberia's flag strongly resembles the flag of the United States of America. The reason why is that many of the people who founded the nation of Liberia were African-Americans.

They have such a sad history though. Nothing is so simple. Everyone suffered and many are still suffering are they not?

Interesting, although in my opinion, Liberia should have done more to project its own identity.
