United States Virgin Islands flag

The United States Virgin Islands flag, established on May 17, 1921, includes a simplified version of the United States coat of arms, with the letters “V” and “I” indicating “Virgin Islands.”

The yellow eagle on the flag holds a sprig of laurel in one talon, indicating victory, and three blue arrows in the other, representing the three principal islands of the United States Virgin Islands, Saint Croix, Saint Thomas, and Saint John. The Virgin Islands were previously under Danish sovereignty, and their flag had a blue ensign with the Danish national flag, known as Dannebrog, in the canton.

Country information

The United States Virgin Islands (USVI) are a group of three islands that are territories of the United States. The islands are small, culturally diverse, and known for their stunning natural beauty, with a varied landscape ranging from sandy beaches and coral reefs to mangrove forests and hills.

The history of the USVI dates back to ancient times, with the first human settlements dating back to at least 1000 BC. The islands have a long and complex history, with a mix of Native American, African, European, and other influences. The USVI became territories of the United States in 1917, and have since gone through a number of political and economic challenges.

Today, the USVI are small, isolated territories with a limited economy. The islands are known for their tourism industry, as well as for their production of agricultural products such as sugarcane, fruits, and vegetables. The USVI have a tropical climate, with hot and humid weather year-round. The official language of the USVI is English.
