The Cayman Islands were discovered in 1503 by Christopher Columbus. He called them the Tortugas for the many turtles seen there. The Caymans were colonized by the British in the second half of the seventeenth century. Until 1962, the islands were a dependency of Jamaica, and then they became a separate colony of with a large degree of self-government.
The flag of the Cayman Islands is the blue Ensign with the arms in a white disc. Dating from 1958, these have a shield showing wavy blue and white lines for the sea, a single English lion and three stars to represent the three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. Atop the shield is a turtle bearing a pineapple, symbolizing the flora and fauna of the islands, and beneath the shield is a scroll bearing the motto "He Hath Founded It Up On the Seas".BUY NOW
