The Flag of Pitcairn Islands was officially adopted on April 2, 1984. The Pitcairn Island Council suggested the design of the flag, which was approved by Queen Elizabeth II.
The Flag of Pitcairn Islands features a blue background with the flag of the UK (Union Jack) in the upper hoist-side quadrant and the Island’s Coat of Arms is centered on the outer half of the flag.
The Coat of Arms of Pitcairn Islands was officially adopted on November 4, 1969. The Coat of Arms features a shield that represents the fascinating ancestral history of the island residents, most of whom have descended from the mutineers of HMS Bounty. The green, yellow and blue colors of the shield symbolizes the green island rising from the vast blue oceans. The green background of the shield features a yellow anchor that is surmounted by a Bible. Both the anchor and the Bible were the items found on the HMS Bounty. The anchor symbolizes the history of the island and the Bible represents the religion of Christianity which was established by the mutineers who settled on the island. Sitting on the shield is a helmet that is surrounded by a wheelbarrow from which springs a flowering twig of a local plant called miro. The wheelbarrow represents the agriculture that helped the mutineers to survive the harsh conditions on the remote Pitcairn Islands.
Being a British Overseas Teritory, the national anthem of the United Kingdom, "God Save the Queen" is the official national anthem as well as the royal anthem of Pitcairn Islands.
