The Flag

Znamierowski [zna99] shows the lion with its feet on the crown, not above them.
Phil Nelson, 6 February 2000

According to [pay00] - Governor General (1:2) - An other flag following strictly the British system, blue flag with royal crest above a golden ribbon inscribed JAMAICA. For the image, I used Graham's drawing of the crown and lion. [smi82] gives the flag aretio 1:2~, and marks it as reconstruction - probably at the time it was not yet well confirmed (but now is?).

The Previous Flag during 1936 Olympic Games

Earlier today, I was idly browsing through You Tube when I came across the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_s_K3-FEwQA
At 2.34 minutes or thereabouts, you will see flying what appears to me to be the flag of the Governor of Jamaica. I am no student of Olympic history and do not know whether the Jamaicans took part in this Olympiad, but even if they did, this flag must surely have been hoisted in error.
