The current flag of Antigua and Barbuda was officially adopted on February 27, 1967, and consists of two triangles, one red and one blue, separated by a black band. The black band contains the rising sun, symbolizing a new beginning, and the red and blue triangles represent the people’s energy and the sea and sky surrounding the islands, respectively. The overall design of the flag is intended to represent the country’s commitment to freedom and its future prospects.
