Flag of Antigua and Barbuda

The flag of Antigua and Barbuda was adopted in 1967 when these two islands located in the Caribbean Sea became independent. The design of the flag was created by Antiguan teacher Reginald Samuels. The shape of the flag should refer to the past, but also to better prospects for the future. The rising sun marks the arrival of a new era, the two red triangles on the sides represent the energy of the local population, and the black marks its black origin. Blue expresses hope, and the successive use of the tricolor of yellow, blue and white is meant to evoke rain, sea and sand. The naval ensign consists of a red St. George’s cross on a white background and the national flag in the upper left corner.

Antigua and Barbuda Flag

The islands of Antigua and Barbuda (the former Dulcina) form an independent island state within the Commonwealth. They lie between the North Atlantic and the Caribbean, southeast of Puerto Rico. See Antigua and Barbuda Location on World Map. Antigua, one of the Leeward Islands, was successively a Spanish, French, and British colony. The still strong British influence can be seen in the Antiguans’ preference for cricket.

The capital Saint John’s, located in the northwest of the island of Antigua on a narrow part of the Caribbean Sea, is an export center for sugar, rum and cotton as well as for the manufacture of handicrafts, fiber products, pottery and textiles. The city is also interesting for tourism.
