Cayman Islands flag
The flag of the Cayman Islands, in its current form, was adopted in 1999. It has a blue background with the Union Flag in the top-left, as with other British overseas territories. The Cayman Islands coat of arms is on the right of the flag. The shield features white and blue waves, overlaid with three stars. A golden lion on a red background sits at the top of the shield, and a turtle with a pineapple stands on top of the shield. The motto at the bottom of the shield reads “He hath founded it upon the seas”, which comes from the Christian Bible’s book of Psalms.
The blue and white waves represent the Caribbean Sea, the three stars represent the three Cayman Islands: Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, and the lion is a symbol of England. The turtle harks to the Spanish name for the islands – Las Tortugas – and the pineapple represents the islands’ links with Jamaica.
Your print options
Digital printing – For the budget conscious we offer a standard digital print option. Printed onto 115gsm quality knitted polyester these flags still have the same print quality as our other printed flags.
Handsewn – For an added touch of quality our handsewn flags are meticulously appliqued using 155gsm woven polyester by our UK based team of seamstresses. A handsewn flag is an investment so we would recommend adding anti-fray to help prolong the life of your flag.
Eco-friendly flag – For the more environmentally conscious customer we offer an alternative to the digitally printed standard knitted polyester which is made from recycled plastic items. It has the same durability, strength and versatility of its knitted polyester equivalent but with a much lower environmental impact.
Anti-fray provides extra protection to the hem to prevent fraying and prolong the life of your flag.
