Politics

According to the 1979 constitution, Saint Lucia is a parliamentary monarchy in the Commonwealth. The British monarch, represented by a local governor general, acts as head of state. The legislature lies with the bicameral parliament, consisting of the Senate (11 members appointed by the Governor General) and the House of Representatives (17 members elected for 5 years by majority vote). The executive power rests with the government under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister, who is appointed by the Governor General. All British Commonwealth citizens residing in Saint Lucia have an active right to vote from the age of 18, and all citizens from the age of 21 who were born in the country or have lived here for one year have the right to vote. Check ezinesports to see North and Central America Political Overview.

National symbols

The national flag was first hoisted on February 21, 1967 when Saint Lucia became an associated state with Great Britain. In the middle of the blue cloth are three triangles of different heights with a common base in white, black and yellow. The triangles stylize the three highest mountains. The blue color stands for the sea and loyalty, black and white for the population. Yellow symbolizes the sun and prosperity.

The coat of arms dates from 1939, the current form has been in effect since Independence Day on February 22nd, 1979. In the blue shield hovers a cross formed by golden sugar cane stalks with an African chair at the intersection. In the four fields, two golden roses (from the Tudors) and two golden lilies (from the Bourbons) commemorate the two-hundred-year struggle between Great Britain and France for possession of the island. The upper coat of arms consists of a stech helmet with a blue and gold helmet cover and a blue and gold helmet bulge, from which the hand of an African American holds up a burning torch in front of two crossed leaves. Shield holders are two blue-headed parrots; the motto on the banner under the sign reads: “The Land, The People, The Light”.

National holidays are February 22nd (Independence Day) and December 13th (St. Lucia Day).
