The flag of St. Lucia consists of a light blue field with a yellow triangle at the hoist. Within the triangle is a black arrowhead pointing towards the center of the flag, and two white stars above and below the arrowhead. The blue color represents the Caribbean Sea and sky, while the yellow stands for sunshine and prosperity. The black and white elements symbolize the country’s African and European heritage, respectively. The two stars represent the twin Pitons, two volcanic peaks that are prominent landmarks of Saint Lucia. The arrowhead represents the determination of the people to move forward and overcome obstacles.
