The Bahamian flag was adopted in 1973. Its symbolism suits the landscape of the Bahamas. The horizontal yellow stripe in the middle represents sand, while the horizontal aqua-blue stripes that surround it represent the sea. The black triangle represents commitment to developing the land and sea.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a black pole topped with a gold-painted spear. The 4 in. x 6 in. flag is mounted to a 10 in. pole, while the 8 in. x 12 in. flag is mounted to a 19 in. pole including 1 in. spear. Base not included.
