Flags of Saint Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha (GIF)


Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha is a British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic, consisting of the island of Saint Helena, Ascension Island and the islands group of Tristan da Cunha. Its capital is Jamestown, its total population is about 6,000, and its area is 420 km². The territory does not have its own flag, but the three administrative divisions have their own flags. All three flags consist of a blue field with the Union Jack in the canton, but they show their own coat of arms on the right. And all flags have the same height-width ratio of 1:2.
