Meaning of Anguilla Flag

The official "national" flag of Anguilla is actually the British Union Jack.

However the Anguillan flag is used both in Anguilla and abroad for decorative and distinguishing purposes such as international sporting competitions.

The Anguilla flag has a deep blue background with the Union Jack in the upper left corner of the flag and a shield on the right side. The shield has three orange dolphins on a white background with a turquoise base. The dolphins represent strength, wisdom and friendship. The Union Jack represents the more then 300 years of association with Great Britain.

There was a three dolphin flag which was used during a brief period of independence. It had a white background for peace and tranquility with a turquoise blue base that represents the sea and also faith, youth and hope. The three orange dolphins stand for endurance, unity and strength. The circular layout represents continuity.

Many native Anguillans fly this flag at their homes and businesses and consider this their “national flag”. But it is not used for any official events or at government buildings such as courthouses, post offices, schools, military bases and other official sites.

The Anguilla governor has a flag that has a unique design. It is a Union Jack with the three dolphin shield bordered in gold on a white background, all a symbol of British and Anguillan cooperation.
