Montserrat flag

Montserrat's flag is a blue ensign, which is a flag with the Union Jack in the canton defaced with the territory's coat of arms. It was adopted after the dissolution of the British Leeward Islands in 1960, and it has been Montserrat's flag since the territory was granted self-government that year. The current flag shows an expanded version of the coat of arms with a white trim around it.

Montserrat's flag is comparable to the flags of eight other British Overseas Territories, which are likewise blue ensigns with the territories' coats of arms. This style is common in British overseas territories. The blue ensign denotes the territory's relationship to the British Crown, but the coat of arms depicts its unique identity and history.
