The current Saint Lucia Flag was designed by local artist Dunstan St. Omer.
The cerulean blue color of the Saint Lucia flag stands for fidelity. The blue reflects the tropical sky and surrounding waters of Saint Lucia. The golden color stands for the prevailing sunshine on the Caribbean Island and prosperity.
The black and white colors represent the cultural influences of black and white people. The three triangles in the flag symbolize the three pitons.
The shape of the isosceles triangle is reminiscent of the famous twin Pitons at Soufriere, an emblem of the hope and aspirations of the people.
