The flag of Jamaica is a vibrant symbol of the nation’s identity and aspirations. Its design features three horizontal stripes of equal width: two green stripes bookending a golden-yellow stripe. Positioned in the center is a bold, black isosceles triangle with its base on the hoist side.
This black triangle embodies the strength and creativity inherent in Jamaica’s people. The green triangle stripes reflect the island’s lush vegetation, while the yellow stripe symbolizes its abundant natural resources and radiant sunshine. Together, all of these elements encapsulate Jamaica’s rich cultural heritage, its natural beauty, and its resilience in the face of challenges.
