The Bahamian flag came to exist after the Bahamas move from a colony of Britain to an independent nation in July 1974. The designer of the flag is largely recognized as Dr. Hervis Bain,who is also credited for the design of the National Coat of Arms.

The colours embodied in the design of the Bahamian flag symbolise the image and aspirations of the people of the Bahamas;the design reflects aspects of the natural environment (sun, sand, and sea) and the economic and social development. The flag is a black equilateral triangle against the mast, superimposed on a horizontal background made up of two colours on three equal stripes of aquamarine, gold and aquamarine.

The symbolism of the flag is as follows: Black, a strong colour, represents the vigour and force of a united people, the triangle pointing towards the body of the flag represents the enterprise and determination of the Bahamian people to develop and possess the rich resources of sun and sea symbolized by gold and aquamarine respectively.

Hey Sarwah....The flag was created by Dr. Hervis Bain. It was part of the post.

I never really thought about the colours of flags and what they represent. I remember this about the U.K's flag:

Red says be brave
White says be pure
Blue says be true

Maybe we can start a new forum about how other flags came about. It should be interesting reading.
