The Barbados flag was designed by Grantley W. Prescod and adopted on Barbadosí first Independence Day, November 30, 1966. The two vertical ultramarine stripes symbolize the ocean, while the yellow strip between them signifies the islandís sand. The black broken trident at the flagís center was taken from Barbadosí colonial badge. The broken staff on the trident signifies a break from British colonial rule. The tridentís three points stand for the three principles of democracy: a government of, for, and by the people.
