If the flag's a clue I've no idea. It looks like an inverted white triangle on a red background.

A red flag with an pointed toward the bottom bearing the horizontal tricolour of black, light blue and white with the rising sun centred on top of the black band. The rising sun symbolises the dawning of a new era. The colours;
the black is for the African ancestry of the people,
the blue for hope,
the red for energy or dynamism of the people.
The yellow sun over the blue and white stands for the sun, rising over the sea and beach.
( so I was informed)

I was trawling through the flags of West Indies countries. Forgot about Antigua and Barbuda. incon_doh

Well done Cornishman. We were there at the end of November just after Prince Harry had "declared it open". Thanks for the clues Jammy.

We did a fabulous exercise there with the Marines back in the day. I was able to use Clarence House as my Squadron Command post ( it was still a semi- ruin at that point) . Great fun whizzing round the island with landing craft and ribs.

Stelvio Pass. Swiss side I think. A magnet for sports bikers who then ride it and realise it's horrible on a sports bike.

Oh OK. It looks so familiar. It's been about 11 years since I was up there. One of the others then. San Bernadino? Furka? Grimsel? I'd go for Grimsel.
