Saint Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey as well as the main port. The population in 2001 was 16,488. In Guernésiais and in French, historically the official language of Guernsey, the name of the town and its surrounding parish is St Pierre Port. The "port" distinguishes this parish from Saint Pierre Du Bois.
The flag is white and covered with the seal of the harbour city. The
seal shows a blue ring with the French "ST. PIERRE PORT * GUERNESEY*"
inscription the coat of arms of Guernsey in the center.
