In a stamp issued in 2003 (No. 1268 - 25th Anniversary of
Belize Defence Force), there is the BDF Standard.

The emblem of the BDF is at <www.belize.gov.bz>,
which also say: "The Motto is "Shoulder-To-Shoulder",
it depicts unity within the organization. This means the BDF
soldiers work and play together as a team. The Emblem, which is
also the design for the Cap Badge and is also depicted on the
Force Flag, is comprised of the mahogany tree with a crossed
rifle and axe. The 'Mahogany Tree' represents Belize and its
people, the 'Rifle' signifies the Defence of the Country and the
'Axe' represents Aid to Civil Power."

With respect to the flag of the Belize Defence Force, I
believe that it differs from the image on the stamp in that there
is no lettering across either the top or the bottom horizontal
bars, I think that they are a solid red all the way across.
