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?
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.
