This is where Rihanna comes from. It's time to understand geography - now! Hi, guys, I was raised with that. Today we have been going to Barbados. Let's take apart the flag.
Believe me, this is going to be crazy. The first thing you may notice is that there will be a trident on it.
It is called the Broken Trident, it symbolizes the people of Barbados, which broke away from historical constitutional connections as a former British colony. The three points signify the three basics of democracy. Government of the people, for the people and about the people.
The gold colored, up and down bar represents the sand of the beaches of Barbados. Blue signifies the sea and sky of Barbados. I love flags with guns. POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY Barbados can be found at 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.
Officially, it's 100 kilometers away in the Atlantic, but you're not so mistaken, because generally everyone considers it portion of the Caribbean. So it's not a big science, thereforerry people, I love you. Anyway, Barbados is kind of awkwardly stuck between your 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.
As a matter of fact, there are no other associated islands, only one lonely island. The total area is about 430 square kilometers and the coastline is about 97 kilometers long. The total island can be bypassed in less than a day or you could crawl the total island in 30 hours with no stops and rest. The capitol is Bridgetown, located in the southwestern section of the island. The territory is divided into 11 districts and in each precinct you can find end up beingautifully 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 really is 85% coral limestone. Limestone. Barbados is also unique in that, because of its geographical location, it avoids disasters very well.
Let's explain. If you look at the map, the other islands of the Lesser Antilles form an arc along the tectonic plate and they are like volcanic and so on.
Barbados is much further east and has no volcanoes. This does not yet belong to the hurricane belt, which means that most hurricanes mwill bes Barbados or barely touch it. Barbados is similar to, "Dude, I don't care, I do what I want, I performn't need any volcanoes, it's pretty hot already. " "And you hurricanes, get out of my sight, out of my sight." Barbados, just 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 much like 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 in the world, which was opened in the pirate years in the early 18th century. Mount Gay, gay .
.. Mount Gay Rum. It is said that there are as much churches as there are rum shops and to thwill be day, rum is the reason 9% of the total economy.
