Antillean Confederacy by Nederbird Antillean Confederacy by Nederbird
The flag of the Antillean Confederacy: a multilingual, wealthy, laicist great power in the Caribbean controlling most of the former Netherlands Antilles, British Virgin Islands and U.S. Virgin Islands along with a few other formerly British islands. It also controls the Turks and Caicos Islands, over which it warred for two and a half year with Bahamas, which was supported by Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

Why does this flag seem inspired by the Trinitarians? (Captain Obvious: the habit of the Trinitarians is white with a red and blue cross.)

i like designs of a vertical red stripe and a horizontal blue one, because it corresponds well with the hatching system, where red is marked with vertical lines, blue - with horizontal lines etc.

i wonder if this was intentional in case of the Netherland Antilles or Trinitarian Order...

It was intentional. The initiative was taken by former Dutch islands in the Caribbean that became independent when the Netherlands were absorbed by the European Federation. It's also a symbol of unity, since it represent the longest-lasting federation of islands (even though they were subordinate to another sovereign state).

Is it still part of the Netherlands?

No, it's independent. They only reused the flag of the Netherlands Antilles since it depicted the colours of all the nations that previously controlled the islands.
