Saint Martin

We just learned about the country of Anguilla

Let's learn a little about the country of Saint Martin!

This is an island in the Caribbean, just east of Puerto Rico.
It is about 87 square kilometers, and about 73,000 people live there.
The people in this country speak English, French and Dutch.

This island is actually divided into two parts. One that is called Saint-Martin and is owned by France, and the other is called Sint Maarten and is owned by the Netherlands.

The flag of Saint-Martin is the same as the flag for France.
The flag of Sint Maarten is a white triangle on the left, then stripes of red and blue on the right.
The red is for the blood of the people, the blue is for the sea and sky, and the white has the coat of arms for the country in the middle.
