Flag of Anguilla
The national flag of Anguilla consists of a Blue Ensign with the British flag in the canton, charged with the coat of arms of Anguilla in the fly. The coat of arms consists of three dolphins, which were featured on the earlier Anguillan flag, and which stand for friendship, wisdom and strength.

The flag is Anguilla's third flag other than as part of Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla. The island's first flag was a red blue flag featuring the name of the island in yellow and two mermaids. Variants to this flag were also widely used, with some substituting red for purple and some not bearing the name of Anguilla. This flag was widely disliked, and was replaced during Anguilla's brief period of independence by the Dolphin Flag, which is still widely seen around the island. This flag was a banner of the arms found on the current flag, and was white with a broad blue band across the base of the flag, above which were three stylised golden dolphins. It was adopted in 1990. The civil ensign is the same as the national flag and state ensign except that instead of a blue ensign, it uses a red ensign, commonly used as a the civil ensign throughout the British Empire, this flag is almost (if at all) never used. Instead, the dolphin flag is commonly used as the all purpose civil flag. The Union Jack defaced with the coat of arms is a design traditional for Governors of the British overseas territories.
