The good ol' pre-Star Trek colonial flag

Former British colony in the Caribbean and part of the Windward Islands archipelago. Though the Brits took control in 1663, various (fourteen to be exact) fracas took place over the years before we finally gave the French a shoeing and made it our very own. All was pink and fluffy until 1979 when the island was granted independence. It is, however, still part of the Commonwealth and thus has Auntie Betty's turnip on its banknotes... which is nice.
