The flag of Barbados consists of a triband of two bands of ultramarine separated by a golden middle band. A black trident-head (commonly called the “broken trident”) is centred within the golden band. The flag was designed by local art teacher Grantley Prescod, and was chosen from around 1000 designs after an island-wide contest.

The two blue bands are said to stand for the ocean, while the gold is for the sand on the island. The trident is taken from the old colonial badge, which showed Britanniaholding a trident, the broken lower part symbolizes a symbolic break with its historical and constitutional ties as a former colony. The three points of the trident represent the three principles of democracy – government of, for, and by the people. Wikipedia
