The Bahamas


On the upper end and over blue-sky backdrop, there’s a radiant sun. Down at the base, a caravel (Columbus) plowing the seas and overcoming the storms (two blue-sky stripes). At the top, a conch hedged with a vertex formed by five plentiful palm trees over a backdrop of dominant colors stands out. A blue-sky line starts out from this structure.

National Anthem

Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland;March on to glory, your bright banners waving high.See how the world marks the manner of your bearing!Pledge to excel through love and unity.Pressing onward, march together to a common loftier goal;Steady sunward, though the weather hide the wide and treach'rous shoal.Lift up your head to the rising sun, Bahamaland;'Til the road you've trodLead unto your God,March on, Bahamaland!
