The flag of the Turks and Caicos Islands consists of a dark blue base with a British Union Jack in the top left quarter and the country's coat of arms on the right hand side. A shield from the coat of arms features a conch, a lobster and a cactus.

Meaning: The Union Jack represents the country's ties to Britain, as it is a British Overseas Territory. The conch, lobster and cactus represent items found in the country.

History: The flag of the Turks and Caicos Islands was adopted on November 7, 1968.

Interesting Facts: Previous versions of the country's flags were similar to the current flag of the Turks and Caicos Islands but the emblems were different. (source: worldflags101)
