Dominica flag bandana size and 3'x5' large flag with metal grommets - available in wholesale

The flag, adopted in 1978, features the national bird emblem, the sisserou parrot, which also appears on the coat of armsgranted on 21 July 1961. This parrot, endemic to Dominica, is an endangered species with a population of only 250–350 individuals.[2]

The green field represents the lush vegetation of the island. The cross represents the Trinity and Christianity, with its three colours symbolising the native Indians, the fertile soil, and the pure water. The 10 green five-pointed stars stand for the country's 10 parishes: (St. Andrew, St. David, St. George, St. John, St. Joseph, St. Luke, St. Mark, St. Patrick, St. Paul, andSt. Peter), while the red disc stands for social justice.

The sisserou parrot is sometimes coloured either blue or purple (the parrot's actual colour). The use of purple makes the flag of Dominica the only flag of a sovereign state to include the color. However, the flag of Nicaragua features a rainbow and therefore, violet.
