Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos
I wonder which European sea power once rules these idyllic islands? Seriously, the British leave their mark across the world’s national flags like a dog pissing in a park. Beyond that, the islands’ coat of arms includes a conch shell, a crayfish (or lobster – there’s some controversy on what species of lobster that is – a spiny or a standard) and what appears to be a green Cousin It. Islands don’t do flags well.

  1. The reason the British flag has such an influence is that these islands are stil a British Protectorate. And other islands with similar flags are either protectorates or colonies. In other words, still part of Britain. And the green cousin it is a Turk’s Head Cactus, the plant from which the Turks Islands take their name.

  2. Oh…and it’s a Spiny Lobster…

  3. LOL dog marking. Exactly 100% the truth. xDDD
