The current Bermuda flag was adopted in the 1960s. As a British overseas territory, Bermuda's flag features the United Kingdom flag upper left. The green and white badge displays a red lion holding a shield that symbolizes the sinking of the Sea Venture about one mile off the coastline of Bermuda in the summer of 1609. The ship was caught in a hurricane, and subsequently struck a reef.
Geography of Bermuda: The Bermuda flag is red, with the flag of the UK in the upper hoist-side and the Bermudian coat of arms (white and green shield with a red lion holding a shield showing the sinking of the ship Sea Venture in 1609) on the outer half of the flag.
