Flags of the World: Antigua and Barbuda Flag

The Antigua and Barbuda flag was officially adopted on February 27, 1967 when Antigua and Barbuda achieved self-government. This design was voted for by more than 600 local people, largely because it was created by the nationally acclaimed artist and sculptor, Sir Reginald Samuel.

The flag of Antigua and Barbuda depicts an inverted triangle that contains the rays of the sun, which represents the dawning of a new era.

The colors of this flag are meaningful as well. The black band represents the African ancestry of the people, the blue stands for hope, and red represents the passion of the people. The successive coloring of yellow, blue, and white radiating down the flag also represent the sun, sea, and sand.
