Bahamas National Symbols

The Bahamian Flag
The colors of the Bahamian flag are black, gold and aquamarine. The black represents the Bahamian people, the gold represents the sun and the aquamarine is a symbol of our crystal clear waters. 

The National Flower
The yellow elder (Tecoma stans) is a tubular yellow flower with ultra-fine red stripes on each petal. It grows wild in The Bahamas, but is usually improved through cultivation. The Yellow Elder Tree may reach a height of nearly twenty feet. The blooming period is from October to December, diminishing by March. 

The National Tree
Lignum Vitae or 'tree of life' (Guaiacum sanctum) is a very heavy wood characterized by clusters of small blue flowers at the branch tips. 

The National Bird

National Anthem
Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahama Land;
March on to glory, your bright banners waving high,
See how the world marks the manner of your bearing
Pledge to excel, through love and unity. 

Pressing onward, march together to a common loftier goal;
Steady sunward, though' the weather hide the wide and treacherous shoal.

Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahama Land;
'Til the road you've trod leads unto your God,
March on, Bahama-land.
