Background

Ogooué-Lolo Province covers an area of 25,380 km² and has 66,000 inhabitants (2013).  The provincial capital is Koulamoutou. The province is named after two rivers - the Ogooué and its tributary, the Lolo River.
Ogooué-Lolo is divided into 4 departments:
- Lolo-Bouenguidi (Koulamoutou)
- Lombo-Bouenguidi (Pana)
- Mouloundou (Lastoursville)
- Offoué-Onoye (Iboundji)

Description of the flag

The provincial flag, as seen during the 2016 inauguration of the President of Gabon, is white with the provincial coat-of-arms occupying 4/5 of the height in the centre.

According to Heraldry of the World, the eagle and the mountain symbolise that Gabon's highest mountains lie in the region. Mont Iboundji was said to be the highest point of the country, with an altitude of 972 metres, but in fact Mont Bengoué in Ogooué-Ivindo Province is the most elevated peak in Gabon at 1,070 metres. The partition stands for the two grand sectors (before 1975) of Koula-Mouyon and Lastoursville. The broken chains recall the liberation of the slaves by the French explorer Savorganan de Brazza.
