Barbados flag

The flag of Barbados is a blue and gold flag with three vertical bands of equal width and a black trident in the center. The flag was officially adopted on November 30, 1966, following Barbados' independence from the United Kingdom.

The color blue on the flag of Barbados represents the country's clear blue skies and the Caribbean Sea, which surrounds the country. The color gold represents the country's natural abundance and its history as a British colony.

The black trident on the flag is a symbol of the country's struggle for independence and its efforts to build a better future. The trident is separated from the shaft and is thought to represent the three democratic principles of government, which are “government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

The three vertical bands on the flag represent the country's unity and national identity, and are thought to represent the country's three main regions: the coast, the central region, and the eastern region.
