The flag of Jamaica is unique compared to other flags around the world in that it is the only flag that does not contain one of the following colors: red, white, or blue. Over time, the meaning behind the colors of Jamaica's flag has changed. After independence in 1962, government officials claimed the black color stood for the challenges the country faced, the green represented the island itself, and the gold color symbolized the bright sun that shines over the land. Today, however, the colors have taken on slightly different meanings. Beginning in 1996, the black color has been said to represent the people of the land, particularly their strength and resilience against hardships. The green color represents the abundance of flora found throughout the island, and the gold color symbolizes the riches found within Jamaica. (Source: www.worldatlas.com)
