Description and Brief History

The Bahamas gained their independence from Britain in 1973, and they adopted the first independent Bahamas flag that year. Even though it was the first and only flag to represent the islands as an independent nation, it was not the first flag that they had ever used. It replaced the colonial flag of the Bahamas, which has a significantly different design than the Bahamas flag that is currently in use. The modern flag is one of the few national flags in the world to have been designed specifically for the nation before the country actually attained its independence. The flag was adopted on July 10, 1973.
