Guadeloupean Flag

 

As Guadeloupe is an overseas territory of France, it uses the French Tricolour as its national flag. However, it does also have its own regional flag, although it is not used for official purposes. This regional flag even comes in two variants, each of which is comprised of two horizontal bands. Although each is blue on top and features three yellow fleurs-de-lis, they differ on the bottom, with one being red and the other black, although they feature the same yellow sun with green sugar cane. The sun stands for the tropical climate that the island nation experiences, while the sugarcane is one of the main crops of the nation.
