Background knowledge

The current flag of Antigua was introduced on 27.02.1967. It won in a design competition and was designed by Reginald Samuel. The flag shows a red base with an isosceles triangle on top. Above the white apex of the triangle is a blue bar, above which is a golden rising sun on a black background. The triangle is supposed to symbolize the V-sign Victory, and the rising sun the beginning of a new age. Red stands for the dynamism of the people, blue for hope and the sea, black for the earth and the African heritage of the people, white for the sand. The color triad of yellow, blue and white is also meant to promote tourism: sun-sea-sand. The coat of arms of the autonomous Antigua was created by Gordon Christopher, and the British Queen Elizabeth II awarded it to the islands on February 16, 1967. The shield of the coat of arms is divided by silver and blue wavy lines, in front of which a stylized mill recalls the processing of sugar cane. The black head of the shield shows the golden rising sun. On the shield rests a helmet with a bead and helmet covers, above the bead a golden pineapple surrounded by four red marshmallow flowers. The shield holders are two deer living on the island of Barbuda. They are standing on a green grassy area enclosed with blue and silver wavy stripes. The right stag bears the shaft of the sugar cane, the left one that of the Barbudian cotton. On the silver ribbon, stitched in red, one reads the motto: "Each endeavoring, all achieving" => "If each endeavors, all will succeed".
