History of Dominica Flag

Facts and History of Dominica Flag



Would you like to know some interesting facts about the Dominica Flag?

Dominica is officially known as the Commonwealth of Dominica. The majority of the people are black descendents of slaves brought from Africa in the 18th century. English is the official language but French Patois is also spoken.

The flag is a green base bisected with both vertically and horizontally by equal sized stripes of yellow, black and white. There is a red disk in the center where the stripes cross one another. On the disk is a Sisserou parrot circled by ten green five point stars with a yellow outline and the parrot faces to the left.

Before 1988 the flag looked somewhat different. The order of the stripes was yellow, white black. The stars were not outlined and the parrot faced right.

The island was nicknamed “Nature Isle of the Caribbean” the youngest island in the Lesser Antilles. It became independent from Britain in 1988.

Juan Pablo Duarte the founding father of Dominica, also known as the Commonwealth of Dominica, conceived the design which was adopted on 3 November 1978.

It is considered one of the most attractive flags and has interesting meanings for the elements on the flag which is a discussion for another time.

The final selection was adopted from a design submitted to a contest to come up with a national flag once independence was granted.
