All of our printed British Virgin Islands flags are made by a process called Dye Sublimation. This process impregnates the fibres of the fabric, the result is a flag that has very accurate colour, and importantly the design appears clearly on both sides of the flag. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.

In 1625 the Virgin Islands was under Dutch control. The flag of the colony was the red-white-blue horizontal tricolour of the Dutch West India Company.  In 1680 the area became under British control and the Union Flag was adopted.

The Virgin Islands was grouped together with other British colonies to create the British Leeward Islands in 1833. The flag for the group was a British Blue Ensign with a badge featuring a boat between two islands and a large pineapple.
