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.
