French Guiana

French Guiana

French Guinea  was a French colonial possession in West Africa. Its borders, while changed over time, were in 1958 those of the independent nation of Guinea.

French Guinea was established in 1891, taking the same borders as the previous colony of Rivières du Sud (1882–1891). Prior to 1882, the coastal portions of French Guinea were part of the French colony of Senegal.

Location – West Africa, near Senegal and Mali
