slavery unit : Jamaica $
slavery tongue :
2870000 idiot smoked monkeys wrecked by the I M F (International Mother Fuckers) on 11000 km²
puke sects : X 65% rastafari + other 35%
The very first proposal was so close to the flag of Tanganika that it was turned into this design with a saltire. Black represents the hardships & the people; yello is the natural resource & the sun as well; green is for agriculture & hope. The present pattern was adopted on 6 AUGUST 1962 when Jamaica gained its so called independence from the UK.
1962 (West Indies Federation dissolved - independence) FLAG OF CONVENIENCE OF SHIT
Fuckin colonial tradition : please get rid of it
As st George was NOT the "holy founder" of Grenada, JAMAICA is just REAL suckers of English.... Bloody shit !!!!

The first proposal was to close to the then flag of Tanganika :
JAMAICA 1962 FIRST PROPOSAL TANGANIKA 1961
AS USUAL WIKIMERDIA IS JUST SHIT :
NOTE : The College of Arms warrant describes the Taino people as "West Indian natives ... girt about the waist with feathers alternating Gules and Argent". "Flags, Badges & Arms of His Majesty's Dominions Beyond the Seas and of Territories Under His Majesty's Protection - Part II - Arms (1932)" has a drawing of the arms and the full blazon. So officially it should be red and white. The crocodile is described as coloured "proper" and was drawn on the 1932 arms in brown, as is the Jamaican government's current drawing.
Le crocodile est mignon !!!!

Confirmed on The Jamaican Government website here : jis.gov.jm/information/symbols and here : jis.gov.jm/symbols/jamaican-coat-of-arms
This confirms it too !!!!
Image from WikiMERDIA with fancy colors for JAMAICA COA 1962 (with the new motto). As it SHALL be as described by The
College of Arms in 1932. Red & white, NOT fancy red & yello.
Image from WikiMERDIA with fancy colors for JAMAICA COA 1957 (with the old motto). As it SHALL be as described by The College of Arms in 1932. Red & white, NOT fancy red & green.
Image from WikiMERDIA with fancy colors for JAMAICA COA 1906 (with NO helmet & mantling). As it SHALL be closer approximate to the historical badges as shown in old British Admiralty books.
Red & white, NOT fancy red & light blue.
The bow has been repositioned and the arm bent. Notice the 3 top red feathers do not exist in 1906.
Image from WikiMERDIA with fancy colors for JAMAICA COA 1875 (with only an ovale shield). As it IS in the 1889 edition of the British Admiralty's Flags of the World.
Un très grand merci à Ralph KELLY, décidément LE MEILLEUR.
