From Bob Marley to national pride, the Jamaican flag represents a lot to different people.

But what does it really mean?

Two black triangles: overcome hardships, both in the past and future of Jamaica.

Two green triangles: hope and agricultural fertility

Yellow cross: also called a saltire, this represents minerals in the ground and sunlight in the sky of Jamaica.

But most of all, it is both beautiful and strong, just like Jamaica.

“Hardships there are, but the land is green and the sun shineth” – Jamaican flag motto
