The national flag of St Helena was adopted on 4 October 1984. The flag appears a differentiated Blue Ensign. There is a blue field with the Union Jack in the upper hoist-side quadrant and the shield from the St Helena Coat of Arms centred on the outer half of the flag.

The shield features the St Helena Plover, known locally as the Wirebird, a rocky coastline and a three masted sailing ship.
