Flag of Tristan da Cunha
|Design||A blue ensign design, defaced with the coat of arms of Tristan da Cunha. |
The flag of Tristan da Cunha was adopted on October 20, 2002, in a proclamation made by the Governor of Saint Helena under a Royal Warrant granted by Queen Elizabeth II. Prior to this, as a dependency of Saint Helena, Tristan da Cunha used the flag of Saint Helena for official purposes.
The designer is the prominent vexillologist Graham Bartram. 
The arms consist of a shield featuring four albatrosses in a blue-and-white mirror image design. The two supporters are Tristan rock lobsters, which are found in the waters surrounding the island. The crest features a naval crown and a Tristan da Cunha longboat.
The motto is “Our faith is our strength”.
