Cayman Islands Flag & Crest



National Flag:

Cayman Islands Flag

The Cayman Islands flag consists of the Union Flag of the United Kingdom at the top left quarter of a dark blue background with the Cayman Islands crest in a white disc appearing at the bottom right quarter.


Cayman Islands Crest:


Cayman Islands Crest

The Cayman Islands were granted their own coat of arms on 14 May 1958. The arms depict three green gold edged stars on blue and white wavy lines. This represents the three islands and the blue lines, the Caribbean Sea.

The red chief above the stars shows the Lion of England which represents the ties to the British. The turtle is the National symbol of the Cayman Islands and the rope it stands on represents the thatch rope industry that is an important part of Cayman's history.

The pineapple at the top of the Cayman Island arms symbolizes the part of history when the Islands were a dependence of Jamaica (which was until 1962 a dependent of Great Britain).
