The flag of the Cayman Islands consists of a Blue Ensign defaced with the British overseas territory's coat of arms.  Adopted in 1959[1] to supplement the Union Jack and to replace the flag of the Colony of Jamaica, it has been the flag of the Cayman Islands since the territory was granted self-government that year.[2]
