Download Picture of Blank Barbados Flag For Kids to Color
The national flag of Barbados consists of three equal vertical panels – the center panel of gold and the outer panels of ultramarine. In the center of the flag are a broken trident in black and a yellow stripe.
The blue stripe represents the sky and the yellow/gold stripe symbolizes the sand and the beaches of the island. The right blue stripe stands for the vast sea. The black trident in the middle of the flag represents Barbado’s independence from the British. Each point of the trident represents the three principles of democracy which are a government of, for, and by the Barbados people.
The Trident is also a symbol of the mythical sea god, Neptune. The broken shaft of the trident denotes Barbados’ break from Britain.
