St. Barts is a part of the French overseas department of Guadeloupe, and therefore flies the flag of France.
The French national flag - the tricolor - consists of three vertical bands of equal width, displaying the country's national colors: blue, white and red. The blue band is positioned nearest the flag-staff, the white in the middle, and the red on the outside.
St. Bart's coat of arms consists of a shield flanked by two pelicans, with a golden crown above it, and the phrase "Ouanalao" below. According to 17th century accounts, Ouanalao is the island's original Caribbean name, and depending on who you ask, it means, "Pelican," or "Iguana on top."
The shield is divided into three sections which contain three golden fleur-de-lises, a Maltese Cross and three golden crowns.
