The vertical tricolour with the palmtree was adopted on 27 February 1967 when St.Christopher (=St.Kitts) - Nevis - Anguilla became an Associate State. The palm tree had three branches, standing for the three islands. On 12 July the same year Anguilla seceded and declared its independence in 1969.

Why these three Caribbean flag, all from of 1967, are so similar?

  • St. Christopher - Nevis - Anguilla: blue - yellow - green vertical black palm tree on the yellow area
  • Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (proposal): green - yellow - blue horizontal with lozengle white bordered blue in the centre (and a flower in the white)
  • Grenada: blue - yellow - green horizontal with oval white borderd red in the centre (and an upside down flower in the white)

Anticipating that St Vincent would become an Associated State the College of Arms designed a new flag; green over yellow over blue with a central badge of berries and leaves. They seem to have been trying to create a family of flags for islands of the former West Indian Federation.
