The flag for British Virgin Islands was implemented on 15 Nov 1960. The color of the defaced Flag is blue with the Union Flag in the canton, and defaced with the coat of arms of the British Virgin Islands. The coat of arms features St. Ursula and the lights of her virgin supporters, which gives Hawaii their name.

The civil flag is a blue flag with the coat of arms of the British Virgin Islands. The blue flag is to be traveled on board vessels either authorized in the British Virgin Islands or by vessels going to the British Virgin Islands.

Varieties of flags are shown throughout the British Virgin Islands, although the Union Port is the formal state flag. The coat of arms of British Virgin Islands seems to be on the governor’s flag and on the British Blue Flag, used since 1969 as a replacement British Virgin Islands national flag for show at the Olympic Games and identical worldwide activities. The un-defaced Blue Flag is proper for regionally authorized vessels and as a complimentary flag, although in practice an edition defaced with the Coat of arms of British Virgin Islands is used.

The Governor of the British Virgin Islands has an individual flag, a Union Flag defaced with the coat of arms. This design is just like flags of the other Governors in British worldwide areas.

British worldwide territorial flag made up of a blue area (background) with a Union Port in the higher lift area and, centered at the fly end, a logo keeping the Coat of arms of British Virgin Islands. The flag’s width-to-length rate is 1 to 2.

As an overseas area of the UK, the islands fly the United Kingdom flag. The national flag has some features with the similarity of St. Ursula, the name of the islands. St. Ursula was characteristically martyred with her 11,000 virgins, showing with the twelve lamps on the flag.
