    Prior to independence from the United Kingdom in August 1962, Trinidad and Tobago used a British blue ensign defaced with a circular badge depicting a ship arriving at a harbor above a ribbon with the Latin motto “Miscerique probat populos et fœdera jungi,” (meaning “He approves of the mingling of peoples and their being joined together by treaties.”)
