Gibraltar flag

Gibraltar's flag is a banner of arms based on the territory's coat of arms. It is made up of two horizontal bands of white and red (the top one is double width), with a red castle with three towers in the center of the white band. A gold key hangs from the castle's gate and is centered in the red band.

The flag is distinct among British Overseas Territories in that it lacks the Union Jack and is not a British ensign. It was made legal in 1982.

The castle on the flag does not represent any individual castle in Gibraltar, but rather represents the entire stronghold. The key symbolizes Gibraltar's strategic importance as a key to Spain by the Moors and Spaniards, and then as a key to the Mediterranean by the British.
