The flag of Belize has been adopted in 1981, when the country achieved independence from the Great Britain. The flag was designed around 1950, when the country began to fight for independence and is it based on the design of the former flag from this period. At that time, Belize was called British Honduras.
The current version of the flag is composed of a blue sheet and a national emblem in the middle. The red stripes are not original and were added after gaining the independence. The national coat of arms shows two workers standing in the shade of mahogany, the first one holding an oar and the second one an ax. Below the workers, there is a ribbon with inscription "Sub umbra floreo" (in the shadow flourish) - which clearly refers to the colonial past of Belize.
