It is composed of three vertical bands of blue, yellow and green (the yellow band forming a Canadian pale being half the width of the flag) with three diamonds centered in the yellow band and arranged in a V which stands for Vincent. These diamonds recall Saint Vincent as the "gems of the Antilles". Blue represents the tropical sky and the crystal waters, yellow stands for the golden Grenadine sands, and green stands for the islands' lush vegetation.
