Jamaica gained full independence within the British Commonwealth in 1962. Deteriorating economic conditions during the 1970s led to recurrent violence and a drop off in tourism. Elections in 1980 saw the Democratic Socialists voted out of office and a more conservative government installed. The flag that was adopted on independence bears a yellow St Andrews cross that forms Two green and two black triangles.
The green is said to symbolize the agriculture and the hope for the future, the black symbolizes the hardships that the nations people have faced in the past (notably slavery) and the yellow symbolizes natural resources and the beauty of the sunlight. A common saying appears to be "Burdens and hardships there may be, but we have hope and the sun still shines".BUY NOW
