White stands for peace.Black stands for the African people of South Sudan.Green signifies the agriculture and ability to grow crops on the country side. And finally the star signifies unity of the states of Southern Sudan.
In the Nuer tribe a man's closest possession is their cattle. Also the Nuer language is a Nilotic language. And the Nuer people only build temporary houses.
