Flag of Trinidad and Tobago (GIF)



The flag of Trinidad and Tobago consists of a red field with a diagonal black stripe with white narrow borders extending from the top left corner to the lower right corner. Red, black, and white colors symbolize fire (representing the sun and courage), earth (representing sacrifice), and water (representing purity and equality). The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted on August 31, 1962.

The shield on its coat of arms features the three ships of Christopher Columbus and hummingbirds, which are common in Trinidad. The shield is supported by the national birds of Trinidad and Tobago, the Scarlet Ibis (left), and the Cocrico. Below the shield are three peaks representing the Trinity Hills of Trinidad and an island representing Tobago.
