Flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
|Design||Three vertical bands of blue (hoist side), gold (double width), and green; the gold band bears three green diamonds arranged in a V pattern. |
The flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines was adopted on October 21, 1985. The previous flags had a realistic breadfruit leaf, where the gems are now, emblazoned with the coat of arms of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. 
The diamonds recall Saint Vincent as the "gems of the Antilles". Blue represents the tropical sky and the crystal waters, yellow stands for the golden Grenadine sands, and green stands for the islands' lush vegetation. The diamonds are set low on the yellow band, recalling the nation's location in the Antilles.
