Her Majesty's personal flag for Barbados follows the normal
pattern of the arms of the country as a banner with a blue circle
in the centre, surrounded by a circlet of gold roses. In the
centre is a large crowned letter E.

Royal Standard (1:2) - Banner of the arms of Barbados with
royal cypher in the middle following the usual practice. I believe
that this flag is rather new, not older then 1990's.

This flag was used back in the 1970s, when the Queen knighted
the West Indies cricketer Gary Sobers in 1975. There are plans
afoot to hold a referendum on becoming a republic, so the flag
would become obsolete, like that in Trinidad and Tobago, in the
event of a change of status.

Barbados has announced that it will drop Queen Elizabeth 2 as the head of
