Margibi County

Margibi is one of the newest counties, created just prior to the civil war. It was founded in 1984 as the 13th county, when two territories, Marshall and Gibi, were removed from Montserrado County and merged to form Margibi. The name derives from “Mar” for Marshall Territory and “Gibi” from Gibi District. The County’s flag is comprised of two major colors, green and red. The green color represents the forest region of the County and its abundant natural vegetation. The red represents the county’s share of the struggle that brought in the military and subsequently transformed the country from Military to Civilian rule.
