Grand Kru county

The creation of the County evolved from an understanding between members of the military junta and the People’s Redemption Council (PRC), which in 1980 overthrew the Administration of President William R. Tolbert and suspended the Constitution of Liberia. The County emblem, the flag, has three colors : green, yellow and white. The flag has ten vertical stripes ; four green, four yellow and two white, with a palm tree in the center. In the upper left-hand corner is the Liberian flag. The green represents the evergreen rain forest, the green vegetation and the savanna that represents the potential for huge private sector investment in the areas of logging and cattle breeding. The yellow depicts the long belt of gold deposits in the County, while the white represents purity

The geographic position of Grand Kru County near the equator and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean determine the County’s climatic condition. The topography of Grand Kru is generally characterized by two major landforms : coastal plains and rolling hills. The geological structure of Grand Kru County is typical of South-eastern Liberia, which is generally classified as having rock of the Eburnean age, generally biotite rich. The County has long been referred to as the “Walking County”, as more than two-thirds of the County is inaccessible by car. But with the implementation of the CDA, Grand Kru County has great potential for growth and poverty reduction. Like other parts of Liberia, Grand Kru has potential for logging and mining, but there have been no significant business investments made in the County since its creation.
