On July 10, 1973 the new Bahamian flag was raised in a special ceremony, and the islands attained their status as an independent, sovereign nation. The flag, quite different from the Union Hack which flew over the islands for 344 years, consists of bold stripes of gold and aquamarine and a black triangle.
