Our 5x8' Belize nylon international flags are made from high grade nylon material. The nylon is manufactured to withstand the elements. Each flag is fully dyed for great ink penetration and finished with a standard canvas heading and brass grommets.
The flag of Belize, adopted in 1981, consists of a royal blue field with horizontal red stripes across the top and bottom of the flag. The blue field features a large white disc with the Belize coat of arms centered on it. On the coat of arms are two men in front of a tree, one holding an ax and one holding an oar. Both men are supporting a shield with a ship on it flying a British Red Ensign. Encircling the coat of arms is a wreath of 50 olive leaves, marking the year 1950 when British Honduras (Belize’s former name) began its fight for independence from the United Kingdom. Beneath the shield is a banner with Belize’s motto “Sub umbra floreo” meaning “I flourish in the shadow.”
