CREATOR OF HOUSE OF FLAYVA, Yola Gray Baker continues to portray the strength and perseverance of those who are unable to fight for themselves.  She depicts this in the colors she uses in most of her Collections with the use of the national colors of Jamaica – “The sun shineth, the land is green, and the people are strong and creative.”  This is the symbolism of the colors of the flag. Black depicts the strength and creativity of the people; Gold, the natural wealth and beauty of sunlight; and Green, hope and agricultural resources.
