Flag of Antigua and Barbuda

Flag of Antigua and Barbuda

The flag of Antigua and Barbuda was adopted in 1967 when these two islands in the Caribbean Sea became independent. The design of the flag was created by Antiguan teacher Reginald Samuels. The flag should refer to the past but also to better prospects for the future. The rising sun represents new era, two red triangles on the sides represent the energy of the local population and the black represents its African-American origins. Blue stands for hope and the gradual use of the tricolor of yellow, blue, and white evokes the sun, sea, and sand. Naval flag consists of a red St. George's cross on a white background and the national flag in the upper left corner.
