The African Diaspora is one of the largest communities in the world.
The African Diaspora consist of worldwide communities of people who are descendants of native Africans or African peoples. These communities include, but are not limited to North and South America, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba, Trinidad, Tobago, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Canada, Spain, Ecuador, Germany, Middle East, and Asia.
The African Diaspora is one of the largest communities in the world. Most of the communities have a common origin, i.e., “Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.” Consequently, there are ancestral bonds intrinsic to the African Diaspora community that can never be broken. These bonds exist irrespective of citizenship and nationality.
The African Diaspora, i.e., Black people the world over share the ideological belief that Africa is the Mother Land, the country of their origin. And the awareness of a common ancestry, and the greatness of that ancestry is visible in the survival narrative of the African Diaspora.
The African Diaspora narrative is not complete, as the common bond among it’s people are political, economic, cultural, social, and academic. After centuries of being denied, exploited, and marginalized, the African Diaspora recognizes the need for unity and solidarity.

The Pan-African flag was created in 1920 to represent people of the African Diaspora and to symbolize black liberation in the United States. As flags symbolize the union of governance, people, and territory, this flag was created to give Black people in America and the world over a symbol that unifies the Diaspora.
