Pitcairn Islands Flag
The Pitcairn Islands coat of arms is an official insignia of the British Overseas Territory of the Pitcairn Islands, given by royal warrant on November 4th, 1969. The coat of arms depicts a shield with a green and blue field. The top half of the shield is blue, with a gold image of the HMS Bounty, which represents the mutiny on the ship in 1789 and the mutineers' subsequent colonization of the islands.
The shield's lower half is green, with a representation of the island, a Pitcairn Island Wheelbarrow, and a representative of the island's flora: the indigenous Pitcairn Island Ivy. The whole is supported by a ship's figurehead of the Bounty, which is topped with a helmet with a wheat sheaf and a Pitcairn Island Reed Warbler. A banner with the island's slogan “Children of the Bounty” adorns the arms.
The coat of arms also appears on the Pitcairn Islands' flag, a Blue Ensign, which was awarded on April 2nd, 1984. This flag, like the coat of arms, is an official emblem of the territory, and it is displayed alongside the Union Jack at all official events and at government buildings across the territory.

The Pitcairn Islands are a group of four small islands located in the Pacific Ocean, about 5,000 miles east of New Zealand. The islands are a territory of the United Kingdom, and are the smallest British overseas territory in terms of population and land area. The Pitcairn Islands are known for their stunning natural beauty, with a rugged coastline and lush forests.
The history of the Pitcairn Islands dates back to ancient times, with the first human settlements dating back to at least 1000 AD. The islands were first discovered by Europeans in the 18th century, and were later settled by the mutineers of the HMS Bounty and their Tahitian companions. The Pitcairn Islands became a territory of the United Kingdom in 1838, and have been self-governing since 1838.
Today, the Pitcairn Islands are a small and isolated community, with a population of about 50 people. The economy of the islands is largely based on agriculture, fishing, and tourism. The islands have a subtropical climate, with warm and humid weather year-round. The official language of the Pitcairn Islands is English, and the islands have a diverse population with a mix of British, Tahitian, and other ethnicities.
