The American Paradise
Discovered by Columbus in 1493, St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix were
originally established as British and Danish colonies known as the Danish West Indies.
The islands were purchased by the United States in 1917. The Virgin Islands flag was adopted by Governor Sumner E.W. Kitelle
by Executive Order in 1921.
The flag of the United States Virgin Islands shows an American Eagle colored in yellow similar to the
one on the US Coat of Arms flag. The eagle clutches a laurel branch in its dexter talon and
three arrows that represent the three main islands in its sinister talon
with the shield of the United States on its chest. The the bald eagle is centered between the initials of
the territory, the letters V and I. The white background of the flag stands for purity.
