Liberia Background

Liberia was born out of the American Colonisation Society, founded in 1816 to resettle freed American slaves in Africa.

Native rulers granted an area of land to US representatives for this purpose.

The site was Cape Mesurado, at the mouth of the St Paul River.

The new colony was christened Liberia (liberty) and the Cape Mesurado settlement, Monrovia; in honour of United States President, James Monroe.

Liberia became an independent republic in July 1847.

Getting Around Liberia

Getting around Liberia can be difficult because much of the country's infrastructure was neglected during the battle years of the nineties.

The US dollar is also legal tender in Liberia, and is preferred by many.

Spoken Language in Liberia

The official language of Liberia is English, although it is only spoken by about 20 per cent of the people.

The rest of the Liberians speak various African languages.

The Liberian Flag

Liberia's low registry costs make it a popular flag of convenience for merchant shipping.

The flag of Liberia can be seen on many tankers around the world.
