Flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

The flag of the island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines which is located in the Caribbean, is composed of three vertical stripes, where the first one is blue, the middle one is wider and yellow and the last one is green. In the middle of the yellow stripe, there are three green diamonds arranged in the shape of the first letter of the name Vincent. The blue represents the sky and the sea, yellow stands for sunshine and green symbolizes lush vegetation of the islands. Green diamonds refer to the national plurality on the islands and also to a large number of islands. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines were once of interest of France and the Great Britain, but the British won the fight and they dominated the islands until 1979, when the independence was proclaimed.
