Flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Flag ratio: 7:11/2:3.
Flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in Taipei.

The flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines was adopted on October 21, 1985. It is composed of a vertical tricolor of blue, gold (double width) and green with three green diamonds arranged in a V pattern centered on a gold band. The diamonds we're arranged in a V pattern, which stands for Vincent and recalled 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.

The previous flags had a realistic breadfuit leaf, where the gems are now, emblazoned with the coat of arms of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
