The flag of the island nation Trinidad and Tobago 🇹🇹 has been adopted after gaining independence in 1962 and its base consists of a red leaf. From the upper left corner, a diagonal black stripe flanked by narrower white stripes is led. This state was for a long time in the center of interest of colonial powers for its favorable geographic location. The Spaniards fought for it against the Dutch, the French and the British. The British transported to the islands many Indians in order to replace the African population slaving on plantations. As a consequence, Trinidad and Tobago is one of the most multicultural countries. The symbolism of the colors on the flag is as follows: black represents the unity of the local population, red stands for vitality and strength, and white is to commemorate the ripples on the sea surrounding the islands and the purity of ideals of the locals.
