Green, Yellow and Black
The flag itself
The Jamaican flag has three colours: green, yellow, and black. It was adopted on August 6, 1962. A diagonal yellow cross divides the Jamaican flag into four triangles - green (top and bottom) and black (hoist side and outer side).
- Yellow - a symbol of sunshine and natural resources
- Green - the land and hope for the future
- Black - the burdens borne by the people
