Our symbol includes an encircled Eye of Heru on top of the RBG Flag. The Circle represents Unity of All People Of African Descent. “The Eye of Heru is a quintessential symbol of awakening to Divine Consciousness”
(Little book of Neter, p.g 50)
The “RBG” Flag, is a symbol of Pan-Africanism first designed and used by Marcus Garvey of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA): Red For The Blood, Black For the People, Green for the Land.
