Flag of the Turks and Caicos Islands (GIF)

The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) is a British Overseas Territory consisting of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago of the Atlantic Ocean and the North West Indies. Its capital is Cockburn Town, its population is about 54,000, and its area is 430 km². The flag of the TCI is a blue ensign with the Union flag in the canton, defaced with the coat of arms of the territory on the right. The yellow and shield-shaped coat of arms includes a conch shell, a lobster and a Melocactus (visually similar to the traditional Turkish fez). The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on November 7, 1968.
