Flag of Bahamas

Bahamian islands are located in the southeast direction from Florida and it have slightly over 300,000 inhabitants. These islands used to be a British colony until gaining the independence in 1973, when the current flag of the Bahamas was adopted as well. Afterwards, the economy has begun to focus on tourism and trade and this trend remained till nowadays. At the same time, a drug trafficking is a big issue and a large part of the workforce migrates to the USA every year. The black wedge on the left side of the flag is supposed to represent the black population of the island, blue stripes stand for the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The yellow stripe should evoke the sun, sand, and beautiful local beaches.
