The flag of Belize uses 12 colors, more than any other country's flag. Within the center of the flag is the coat of arms, featuring two woodcutters, one carrying an axe, the other a wooden oar. Directly behind them is a mahogany tree, important to the early economy of the country. The shield also shows a ship, which represents ship building, another important element of the country's economy. Also shown is the national motto of the country, Sub Umbra Floreo, "Under the Shade I Flourish".
Belize flag is 100% durable Nyl-Glo, made in America. Finished with canvas heading and two solid brass grommets.
