The national flag of Barbados is comprised of three equal vertical panels - the center panel of gold and the outer panels of ultramarine. A broken trident in black is located in the center of the flag.
Blue represents the sea and sky of Barbados, while gold represents the sand of the island's beaches. The symbol at the center of the flag represents the Trident of the mythical sea god, Neptune - the shaft of the trident is broken symbolizing Barbados' break from Britain.
