Flag of Martinique (GIF)

The flag of Martinique (French: Drapeau de la Martinique) is a distinctive tricolor design that carries significant symbolism. It features a bold red equilateral triangle on the left side, juxtaposed against two horizontal bands of green at the top and black at the bottom. This red, green, and black composition holds profound historical and political meaning, as it is championed by various Martinican independence and nationalist groups, representing the island's history, struggles, and collective aspirations for autonomy. Notably, the flag is not embraced by the Martinican Independence Movement (MIM). The colors embody a narrative of resilience, reflecting the complex interplay of Martinique's past, its people's determination, and the ongoing discourse surrounding the island's political identity and aspirations for self-determination.
