The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). It is a full member of the International Cricket Council. The WICB is made of by the Cricket Association of:
During the Oppening ceremony of the Cricket World Cup, organized by International
Cricket Council, at South-Africa on February 8, 2003, the West Indies side marched with
a plain red flag with the emblem of the WICB over all in the center.
It is assumed that the same flag is of the West Indies Cricket Board.
The emblem consist of a Polish blue field charged with depictions of an island, a palm-tree, a bail and a rising sun.

When the West Indies cricket team was in South Africa at
the end of last year/beginning of this year, they used this flag but the background was dark red/maroon - definitely not brown. Some of the flags just had the shield in the centre of a plain field with no horizontal stripes.

http://www-uk.cricket.org/ has little flags on the homepage, and
the one of the West Indies doesn't have stripes.

Did anybody catch a little more of the opening ceremony of the cricket world cup (1999) than what they showed on
There were 12 huge flags there for the participating nations, and they seemed OK, the ones I saw. But I did not see the flag they used for the West Indies.
Usually they use the Brown with three small white stripes, but it could also be the plain brown with coat-of-arms.

According the web site of the West Indies Board, in the banner appears an images that
seems to be the flag of the body.
