This is the flag adopted for the Bubi people, which live in Bioko Island (Equatorial Guinea). Ratio 2:3. No more details
are known at this stage. In the process of decolonization from Spain, the Bubi's were left under
the jurisdiction of the peninsular people of Fang, led by the Nguema clan. Many Bubis
are refugees in Catalonia or Euskadi.

The flag used by the movement "Grupo Nacionalista Bubi 1 de Abril" (Group of Bubi
Nationalists 1st April) has blue, white, and green horizontal stripes. In the center
of the white stripe is a black four pointed star. The Movement is fighting for
the independence of the Bioko Island.

The Bubi (Eri) flag according to the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] (listed
under nr. 11) shows a reconstruction of the same flag but with a five pointed
star (probably from an imprecise description).
