These diamonds emphasize the island’s strategic location in the Caribbean and signify the resilience and endurance of its people.
Historically, blue has been associated with the vastness of the sky and the depth of the sea surrounding the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

On the flag, the blue band signifies the country’s connection to the Caribbean Sea, its dependence on marine resources, and the value of nature’s bounty to its people.
Gold, often painted yellow on the flag, symbolizes wealth and prosperity. For the islands, this prosperity is not just material but also signifies the sun’s warmth, the golden sands of its beaches, and the radiant spirit of its people.
