Flag of Ascension Island
|Design||The flag is a blue ensign design, defaced with the coat of arms of Ascension Island. |
The Ascension Island Council approved a final design for a coat of arms in January 2012. Following the agreement of the Governor of St Helena, Ascension and Tristan de Cunha, the design was submitted to the College of Arms for formal approval. The council also agreed that the flag design should be a blue ensign defaced with the proposed arms. The arms received royal approval in August 2012 and are now in official use by the Ascension Island Government.
A final design for the island's flag was agreed by the Ascension Island Council in November 2012 and received approval from HM the Queen in April 2013. This flag was raised for the first time on 11 May 2013.
