Flag of Saint Kitts and Nevis

The current flag of the archipelago of St. Christopher and Nevis has been in use since 1983 and consists of a sheet that is divided by a black diagonal stripe into green and red fields. In addition, the black stripe is flanked on both sides by a narrow yellow stripe and bears two white five-pointed stars. The stars may represent the two main islands, but according to the official interpretation, they represent freedom and hope. The green color of the upper left field symbolizes the fertile soil of the islands, the opposite red field is intended to commemorate the struggle for independence. The yellow color indicates the local bright sun and the black stripe represents the dark-skinned population. The islands were named as early as 1493 by Christopher Columbus during his discovery expedition.
