From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The flag of Saba (Dutch: vlag van Saba) was adopted on December 6, 1985 (national day of the island). 130 different designs were presented to the Commission. The chosen flag was designed by an 18-year-old Saban named Edmond Daniel Johnson.
Saba accepted Dutch sovereignty after 1816 and used the Dutch flag. However, since some islanders considered Saba a "republic", they added a special symbol – a green cabbage — to emphasize their independence, and this symbol was used probably until about the 1920s.
