Flag of Barbados (GIF)


The national flag of Barbados consists of three bands of blue, yellow, and blue with a black triangle centered on the yellow band. Blue represents the ocean and the sky, and yellow symbolizes the sand. Trident's three points represent the three pillars of democracy: the government of the people, the government for the people, and the government by the people. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on November 30, 1966.

Also, the coat of arms includes the helmet, which is a national symbol, the dolphinfish and pelican bird holding the shield with a bearded fig tree, and the cross-shaped two sugar canes held by a Barbadian.

The Barbados flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Barbados is an island country in the Lesser Antilles of the West Indies, in the Caribbean region of North America. Its capital is Bridgetown, and its population is about 287,000.
