Saint Pierre and Miquelon

We just learned about the country of Cayman Islands

Let's learn a little about the country of Saint Pierre and Miquelon!

This country is in the northern Atlantic ocean, just east of Canada.
It is about 242 square kilometers, and about 6,000 people live there.
The people in this country speak French.

The flag of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is either the flag of France, or a special flag made just for the islands.
The special flag is a yellow ship called the Grande Hermine sailing on a blue sea. This was the French ship that discovered the island.
On the left are the flags of three countries that have ruled over the island: Basques, Bretons, and Normans.

Visiting this country you might go see the coastal city of St. Pierre, which is the biggest town and place where most of the business like fishing happens.

Because Saint Pierre and Miquelon are so far to the north by Canada, they can have very harsh winters with lots of snow!
