Flag Of Belize – A Symbol Of Prosperous Country

The national flag of Belize is an ongoing edition of the previous flag of English Honduras. British Honduras acquired the coat of arms on 28th January, 1907, which established on the base of the logo used on English flags. The coat of arms remembers the logging market that first led to English to settle in that place. The tools, figures and mahogany leaves signify this market. The color of the flag is royal blue. The flag is outlined at top and base by two red strips on both horizontal sides of the flag.
