Saint Kitts and Nevis flag

Saint Kitts and Nevis' flag consists of a yellow-edged black stripe dividing a green upper triangle and a red lower triangle diagonally from the lower hoist-side corner. Two white five-pointed stars adorn the black band. It replaced the flag of Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla in 1983 and has been the national flag of the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis since the country's independence that year. The flag's colors are supposed to be inspired by the Pan-Africanist movement, but the symbolism behind them is interpreted differently.

St. Kitts, Nevis, and Anguilla joined the West Indies Federation in 1958, but when the federation disbanded four years later, the islands were granted associate state status as Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla. Anguilla, on the other hand, voted to secede from the federation in 1969, fearing that their already small population would be further marginalized in parliament. This was eventually ratified in 1980, and a new flag was required for the other sections of the federation because the old flag's symbolism concentrated on the concept of a three-way union.

In the early 1980s, a national competition to design a new flag was organized, and the winning design by student Edris Lewis was one of 258 entries. It was raised for the first time one minute after midnight on September 19, 1983, the day Saint Kitts and Nevis gained independence.
