National Symbols of the Bahamas
The Bahamian Flag
The colors of the Bahamian flag are black, gold and aquamarine. The black represents the Bahamian people, the gold represents the sun and the aquamarine is a symbol of our crystal clear waters.
The National Flower
The yellow elder (Tecoma stans) is a tubular yellow flower with ultra-fine red stripes on each petal. It grows wild in The Bahamas, but is usually improved through cultivation. The Yellow Elder Tree may reach a height of nearly twenty feet. The blooming period is from October to December, diminishing by March.
The National Tree
Lignum Vitae or 'tree of life' (Guaiacum sanctum) is a very heavy wood characterized by clusters of small blue flowers at the branch tips.
The National Bird
Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahama Land;
Pressing onward, march together to a common loftier goal;
New Year's Day (January 1)
