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 solidarity and courage, the blue peace and assurance of pardon, and the white purity and faith. The flag is similar to the War Flag of the Philippines.
