Guadeloupe, an overseas region and department of France located in the Caribbean, has no flag with official status other than the French national flag. In addition to the French flag, an inscribed regional logo on a white field is often used as regional flag, similar to the practice in Mayotte and Réunion. The logo of Guadeloupe shows a stylized sun and bird on a green and blue square with the subscript REGION GUADELOUPE underlined in yellow.

Other flags[edit]

A locally used unofficial flag, based on the coat of arms of Guadeloupe's capital Basse-Terre has a black or red field with a yellow sun and a green sugar cane, and a blue stripe with yellow fleurs-de-lis on the top.
