Flag of Saint Lucia

The flag of the island nation of Saint Lucia is composed of a pale blue sheet on which is placed a black isosceles triangle, the arms of which are lined with white. This triangle shares a base with another, yellow triangle, whose arms are shorter than the black triangle. The blue leaf, as in the case of other island states, represents the ocean that washes the shores of the island. The triangles are supposed to evoke the so-called pitons – typical lava stones found on the island. The flag was designed by artist Dunstan St. Omor and was adopted in 1979, when Saint Lucia gained independence from Great Britain.
