National Flag

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Flag

The flag has three vertical stripes of blue, yellow, and green, with a middle pattern of three green diamonds. Blue symbolizes the sea, yellow represents the sun, and green denotes the earth.

History

The Caribbean was originally inhabited by Indian tribes, but in 1489 Columbus reached St. Vincent. In 1627 the British occupied the island. After 185 years of colonization, the Treaty of Versailles confirmed Britain’s right to rule the island. On October 27, 1979, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines declared independence and joined the Commonwealth.

Agriculture is the staple of the economy, with a small number of agricultural processing and light manufacturing industries. Main exports are arrowroot, bananas, and spices, and the islands are the world's largest producer of arrowroot starch. Extracted from Kudzu Kudzu, it is mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry and the production of specialty paper.
