Facts: Its stripes of blue- for the sea and sky. Strip of Gold- for the sand of
the  beaches. The black trident head was inspired by the colonial flag of
Barbados, which featured a trident-wielding Poseidon, or Neptune, figure.  
The shaft of the trident is broken symbolising Barbados' break from Britain.

The flag was first hoisted on Nov. 30, 1966, the date of independence from
Britain.

Barbados Culture: THE NATIONAL ANTHEM
OF BARBADOS

In plenty and in time of need
When this fair land was young
Our brave forefathers sowed the seed
From which our pride is sprung
A pride that makes no wanton boast
Of what it has withstood
That binds our hearts from coast to coast
The pride of nationhood

Chorus:
We loyal sons and daughters all
Do hereby make it known
These fields and hills beyond recall
Are now our very own
We write our names on history's page
With expectations great,
Strict guardians of our heritage
Firm craftsmen of our fate

The Lord has been the people's guide
For past three hundred years
With him still on the people's side
We have no doubts or fears
Upward and onward we shall go
Inspired, exulting, free
And greater will our nation grow
In strength and unity

Lyrics By: Irving Burgie.
