This is where Rihanna comes from. It's time to study geography - now! Hi, guys, I grew up with that. Today we have been moving to Barbados. Let's take apart the flag.
Believe me, this is going to be crazy. The very first thing you may notice is that there will be a trident on it.
It is called the Broken Trident, it is a symbol of the everyday people of Barbados, which split away from historical constitutional connections as a past British colony. The three points represent the three ideals of democracy. Government of the people, for the people and concerning the people.
The gold colored, up and down bar signifies the sand of the seashores of Barbados. Blue represents the sea and sky of Barbados. I love flags with guns. POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY Barbados can be found in the Atlantic Ocean east of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean. In ways it belongs in the Caribbean, but that isn't true.
Technically, it's 100 kilometers away in the Ocean, but you're not so mistaken, because pretty much everyone considers it portion of the Caribbean. So it is not a big science, thereforerry people, I love you. Anyway, Barbados is kind of awkwardly stuck between the two. It's like a vampire Caribbean and a werewolf Atlantic.
"Barbados, I will always love you, forever.
" "No, Barbados, I'm the only one right for you personally, I'll always love you." Many people say that Barbados's shape is similar to a pear or a leg of lamb. I think it looks like a thumbs up without all the other fingers. Yeah! As for the borders, it's easy, because Barbados is just one island.
In fact, there are no other linked islands, only one lonely island. The total area is about 430 square kilometers and the shoreline will be about 97 kilometers long. The total island can be bypassed in less than a day or you could crawl the entire island in 30 hours with no stops and rest. The capitol is Bridgetown, located in the southwestern part of the island. The territory is divided into 11 dwill betricts and in each precinct there are beautifully named cities such as Friendship and Cake Corner.
I wish this whole country was out of the pie, right? We find out in ... PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY No, it's not from the cake.
And unlike many other islands in the area, it is 85% coral limestone. Limestone. Barbados is also unique for the reason that, due to its geographical location, it avoids disasters very well.
Let's explain. In the event that you look at the map, the other islands of the Lesser Antilles form an arc across the tectonic plate plus they are like volcanic and so on.
Barbados is much further east and contains no volcanoes. Thwill be does not yet participate in the hurricane belt, which means that most hurricanes miss Barbados or barely touch it. Barbados is like, "Dude, I don't care, I do what I want, I performn't need any volcanoes, it's pretty hot already. " "And you hurricanes, escape my sight, out of my view." Barbados, like the other Caribbean islands, is predominantly flat.
A lot of land is arable, about three quarters, but they are no longer dependent on agriculture.
Before the 1950s, Barbados was essentially addicted to sugar. Sugar production dominated the economy, but as with any sugar dependence ...
Seizure and death. I'm kidding. But seriously, the cost of sugar has fallen drastically. Fortunately, Barbados was smart and shifted its focus to other revenue opportunities like tourism, trade and like other cute islands, offshore banking. They decided to become a sort of tax haven, which attracted many international investors.
This shows that if you don't want money from people, they will love you. Barbados also has beautiful beaches, coral reefs and caves. But they have always been big fans of rum. There is the oldest rum distillery on earth, which was opened in the pirate years in the first 18th century. Mount Gay, gay .
.. Mount Gay Rum. It is said that there are as much churches as there are rum shops and to this usually day, rum is the reason 9% of the total economy.
