The flag of Saint Barthélemy, an overseas collectivity of France, is often represented by the French national flag, which features three vertical bands of blue, white, and red. Each color has its own significance: blue represents freedom, white symbolizes peace and purity, and red stands for bravery and revolution. In addition to the French flag, Saint Barthélemy also uses a separate territorial flag. This flag is a white field emblazoned with the coat of arms of the island. The coat of arms includes a Maltese cross, a gold fleur-de-lis, a mural crown, and three crowns representing the three Swedish national crowns, recalling the period of Swedish sovereignty over the island. The mural crown typically symbolizes municipal authority. The colors gold and white on this flag suggest nobility and purity. The overall design reflects the island’s historical ties to both Sweden and France.
