Belize Flag

Thanks to the CIA World Fact Book on Belize a description of the flag of Belize.


Flag Description: Blue with a narrow red stripe along the top and the bottom edges; centered is a large white disk bearing the coat of arms; the coat of arms features a shield flanked by two workers in front of a mahogany tree with the related motto SUB UMBRA FLOREO (I Flourish in the Shade) on a scroll at the bottom, all encircled by a green garland of 50 mahogany leaves; the colors are those of the two main political parties: blue for the PUP and red for the UDP; various elements of the coat of arms – the figures, the tools, the mahogany tree, and the garland of leaves – recall the logging industry that led to British settlement of Belize
 
Please note that the flag of Belize is the only national flag that depicts human beings; two British overseas territories, Montserrat and the British Virgin Islands, also depict humans.
