Design and symbolism
The flag is a horizontal bicolour of red and blue with the coat of arms of Sint Maarten on a white chevron. The red symbolises war and bloodshed, the blue peace and assurance of pardon, and the white purity and faith.
The design of the flag of Sint Maarten resembles the flag of the Philippines when flown in time of war (with the red field on top).
