Windward Islands

 

This flag often associated with the Windward Islands is wrong.  The badge was used only on the Governor’s Union Jack.

  

Probably imaginary.  The Arms which are on the flag were not granted until 21st December 1965, when it was already known that independence would be granted 30th November 1966.  Why make a flag which would be obsolete in less than a year ? 

 

Should, I think, not be included because although Barbados was part of the Windward Islands from 1833 to 1885, the Windward Island badge on the Governor’s Union Jack was not introduced until 1886, so the two flags were never concurrent.

 

 

 

 

 

Trinidad was never part of the Windward Islands.

Tobago was, but only from 1833 to 1889.
