Turks and Caicos Islands flag

The Turks and Caicos Islands' current flag is a blue field with the Union Jack in the canton and the coat of arms shield in the fly. On a white disc enclosed by a blue ring carrying the text “Turks and Caicos Islands,” the coat of arms portrays a Turk's head in profile on the left and a Caicos Island turtle on the right.

The blue color on the flag reflects the sea, the islanders' major source of income, and the Union Jack represents the islands' historical ties to the United Kingdom.

The flag was first flown on November 7, 1968, and was changed in 1999 to add the coat of arms on the fly. The flag resembles that of British abroad territories, representing the islands' status as a British Overseas Territory. The Governor's flag was also changed on August 15, 2012, replacing the Union Flag with the national flag of the United Kingdom.
