Bahamian Flag - BLACK, GOLD, & AQUAMARINE
The Bahamian flag consists of the colours black, gold and aquamarine. The black fills an equilateral triangle and is positioned at the mast side of the flag. The remainder of the flag contains three equal horizontal stripes or bands. The top and bottom stripe are aquamarine, separated by one of gold in the centre.
The colour black, being a strong colour, represents the strength of a united people and the gold and aquamarine symbolize the natural resources of land and sea.
The triangle pointing towards the body of the flag represents the Bahamian people's determination to build together upon the rich resources of this island nation.
