Bob Marley who is world renown for introducing reggae music to the world always used Reggae colors Red, Green and Gold.

Why do most Reggae artists use Reggae Colors Red, Green and Yellow? The green, gold and red are the colours of the Ethiopian flag and show the loyalty Rastafarian feel towards the Ethiopian state in the reign of Haile Selassie.

The correct order of the colours is red, yellow and then green in horizontal stripes.

At most Reggae or Dancehall festivals around the world, you will see fans waving the Red, Green and Gold fans.

Reggae artists Sizzla Kalonji, Capleton and Damian "Jr Gong" Marley always performed with flagman waving a flag with the same colours.

Reggae music got its colors from the Ethiopian Flag and the Rastafarian Culture and the teaching of Marcus Garvey.

Rastafari, also known as Rastafarianism, is an Abrahamic religion that developed in Jamaica during the 1930s.

Scholars of religion and related fields have classified it as both a new religious movement and a social movement.

There is no central authority in control of the movement and much diversity exists among practitioners, who are known as Rastafari, Rastafarians, or Rastas.
