GMT or UTC -01:00 Time Zone Flag = Aries Time Zone

Aries Time covers the island nation of Cape Verde.  The colours of the flag are red, white, and black.  The single red star indicates that it one step off of UTC Zulu Time.  Aries was chosen for this time zone since it is the first sign of the Western Zodiac and this is the first time zone of the Western Hemisphere.  Thus Cape Verde is the first nation of the Western Hemisphere and only nation to exist detached in between the continents by longitude.
