Each banknote with the distinctive illustration of the Palm tree and rising sun, believed due to the country adopting the song 'The Land of the Rising Sun' as its national anthem. Biafra, or Republic of Biafra, did not have a very long lived life as an independent state and its declaration of independence from in May 1967, due to rising tensions in economic, ethnic, cultural and religious tensions in nature, between the various people of Nigeria, led to a Civil War that ended in January 1970 with what is believed almost 2 million Biafran civilians losing their lives (3/4 of which small children) caused by starvation in the region. The starvation was in result of the complete blockade of the Biafran region by the Nigerian Government and it led to the surrender of the Biafran Forces to the Nigerian Federal Government (FMG) in 1970, and the state re-joining Federal Nigeria.
