The flag of Lagos State between October 1960 and May 1967.
Jens Pattke, 26 April 2005
Adopted 1967 and struck 1970. Since 1970 only the Nigerian coat of arms and flag
may be used as symbol of a state.

In Whitney Smith's book [smi75b] (page 266) there is
on the Nigeria page a flag of State of Lagos. What is interesting is that the
flag is in proportions approx. 5:6, green-white-green with coat of arms in the
middle (not Nigerian but some other) obviously based on Nigerian flag.
