We just learned about the country of Antigua and Barbuda

Let's learn a little about the country of Barbados!

This is a very small island country in the Caribbean Sea, just north of Trinidad and Tobago, and South America.
It is about 439 square kilometers, and about 287,000 people live there.
The people in this country speak either English or Creole.

The flag of Barbados is vertical stripes of blue, yellow, and blue with a black trident in the middle.
Blue is for the ocean and sky, yellow is for the sand, and the three points of the trident are for government of the people, by the people and for the people.
The bottom of the trident is broken to show that they are not part of a colony and owned by another country anymore after their freedom.
