THE FLAG

The Star (St. Lucia) - - NATIONAL DAY -

The Saint Lu­cian flag is a beau­ti­ful rep­re­sen­ta­tion (ex­pres­sively de­signed by Dun­stan St Omer, one of the is­land’s fore­most artists) of the phys­i­cal and spir­i­tual beauty of the is­land. It con­sists of a cerulean blue back­ground rem­i­nis­cent of the ex­panse of the Caribbean Sea that sur­rounds the is­land her­self. Cen­tred upon the blue is a mul­ti­lay­ered tri­an­gle of black, white and yel­low, an ab­stract rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the Pi­tons, the is­land’s most noted land­mark. The black and white colours show the melt­ing pot of peo­ples who make up her pop­u­la­tion and cul­ture. The bright yel­low brings to mind not only the bril­liant sun­shine that draws so many vis­i­tors to her shores, but also the hope and light of the na­tion’s fu­ture.
