The National Flag of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Our flag symbolizes the unity of our federation, it represents the citizens of St Kitts and Nevis without distinction of race, language, opinion or belief.

When Anguilla segregated from St Kitts and Nevis, a competition was held in the 1980’s to choose a new flag. Out of 258 entries Edris Lewis was able to capture best design. The flag was hoisted for the very first time on September 19, 1983 which was the day St Kitts and Nevis became independent.

The flag is quite unique as the colours and symbols carry our cultural, political and regional beliefs. The Green represents fertile land, the Red evokes the fight for freedom against slavery and colonialism, Yellow represents our year round sunshine and Black our African heritage. Diagonally on the Black stands two White stars which symbolize hope and liberty.

While we are on the Flag topic…did you know Nevis has a Flag of its own? It came about when Nevisians wanted to segregate from the sister island St. Kitts. However we are one federation and we share one flag.
