We just learned about the country of Trinidad and Tobago

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

This country is a small island in the Caribbean Sea, just south east of the Domnican Republic.
It is about 750 square kilometers, and about 71,000 people live there.
The people in this country speak mostly English or Creole.

The flag of Dominica is green, with a bird in a red circle in the middle, and a cross with yellow black and white stripes.
Green is for the land, the cross is for Christianity, and the stripoes are for the people, the land and the water.
The red circle is for justice, and the 10 stars on the circle are for the 10 areas on the island.
The bird is a sisserou parrot, which is the national bird.

To eat in this country you might have callaloo soup, which is a green leafy stew soup.

Visiting this country you might go see Cabrits National Park, where there is a tropical forest, coral reefs, and an old military base called Fort Shirley.
There is a hiking trail that ends up in this park called Waitukubuli Trail, which is the longest trail in the Caribbean at 115 miles.
