Pitcairn Island was the place chosen by several of the mutineers from HMS Bounty as their home in 1790, and this is one of the elements represented in the island's flag. The flag is a Blue Ensign with the island's Coat of Arms in the fly. The design was suggested by the Pitcairn Island Council in December 1980 and approved by HM The Queen in April 1984. The flag was first flown on Pitcairn in May 1984.
The Pitcairn Island's Coat of Arms were granted by Royal Warrant dated 4th November 1969. The blue field represents the Pacific Ocean; the green triangle represents Pitcairn Island with the gold edging representing the island's beaches. Set within the triangle are the bible representing Christianity and the anchor of the Bounty. The crest is a wheelbarrow to represent the first settlers, and the Miro plant represents the wood the islanders use for carving souvenirs for tourists.Contact us to purchase
