Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

We just learned about the country of Barbados

Let's learn a little about the country of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines!

This country is in the Caribbean Sea, just north of South America, and just west of Barbados.
It is about 390 square kilometers, and about 110,000 people live there.
The country is made up of about 32 small islands.
The people in this country speak either English or Creole.

The flag of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is blue, yellow and green, with three green diamonds in the middle of the yellow.
Blue is for the sky and sea, yellow is for the sand and sun, and green is for the plants and life.
Three diamonds in the middle are for the nickname for the country of the "Gem of the Antilles", and it's in the shape of a V because of the Saint Vincent.

There is a private island called Mustique that means mosquito, where only a few super rich people like Tommy Hilfiger own the island and have very fancy private houses and beaches.
