The old colonial pre-independence flag


Former colony in the Windward Islands group of the West Indies. Barbados, though colonised earlier, became a Crown territory in 1627 - a state of affairs that lasted until 1966 when it became independent. The island is still a member of the Commonwealth and the Queen is still head of state... which is nice.
