According to a photograph published in Flag Report 91 (July 2019) and other
photographs I have, the flag of Bahamas Immigration Dep. is not 1:1:1, but
According to https://www.immigration.gov.bs/about-us/history/:
The Immigration Flag is the creation of Chief Immigration Officer Philip V. L. Gomez. It has three unequal stripes from hoist to fly black gold and aquamarine; bearing two gold billets on the aquamarine.br>The flag also recalls the “Banner of the Kingdom of the XV Islands”, which Spain created around 1496 to symbolize the area that is now The Bahamas.
CConsequently, during the 1991 unveiling, then Minister Alfred Maycock articulated his hope that the dedication service would mark the beginning of a special blessing from the ‘Almighty God’ to be bestowed upon the Immigration Officers and that God would protect them against destruction.
