The flag of Jamacia
was first adopted on the 6th of August 1962, the day that it gained independence from the British controlled West Indies. It has a variant of Saint Andrews cross, splitting it into four sections of green (top and bottom) and black (hoist and fly). It is also the only national flag that does not contain a shade of red, white, or blue. The flag was designed in a national competition, which originally contained horizontal gold stripes, but this was replaced with the cross. Its original symbolism was said to be how hardships there are, but the land is green and the sun shineth, according to the legislation passed in 1962. However, this was changed to represent the creativity of the people when faced with hardships (black), the fertility and lushness of the land (green) and the wealth of the nation, along with the sunshine in the sky (gold). We offer a wide range of flag related products such as bunting, table flags, hand flags, pole flags, car flags and pin badges in a huge variety of designs, all at extremely good value.
