Fakta om Guyana

  1. Navn og floder: Navnet 'Guyana' stammer fra det indianske ord 'Guiana', som betyder "landet med mange floder". De 4 længste floder i Guyana er Essequibo, Courantyne, Berbice og Demerara (Essequibo er den længste)
  2. Hollændere: I 1600-tallet blev Guyana en hollandsk koloni, hvor hollænderne byggede diesystemer til at håndtere floderne og etablere landbrug
  3. Britere: I 1815 overtog briterne magten i Guyana, hvilket resulterede i at landet herefter blev kaldt Britisk Guyana. Først i 1966 blev Guyana uafhængige af det britiske kongedømme
  4. Befolkningssammensætning: Guyanas befolkning består primært af indere (hindustani /østindere) og afrikanere (hhv. 43,5% og 30,2%), der alle er efterkommere af de slaver hollænderne og briterne bragte til landet før i tiden. Herudover findes der også folk af blandet herkomst (16,7%) samt oprindelige indianere (9,1%)

  7. Regnskov: Omkring 70% af Guyanas areal er dækket af regnskov
  8. Flag: Guyanas flag kaldes også 'The Golden Arrow Head', hvilket betyder "Den Gyldne Spydspids". Flaget har været i brug siden 1966, da Guyana vandt sin uafhængighed fra briterne
  9. Jim Jones: Den 18. november 1978 begik den amerikanske religiøse kultleder Jim Jones kollektivt selvmord sammen med sine 909 følgere i Jonestown, Guyana. Denne tragedie gjorde landet verdenskendt
