Dominica ISD Calling code is +1767
The flag of the Caribbean island Dominica, which has been adopted in November 1978, consists of a grass green leaf. A cross composed of three stripes (yellow, black and white) passes through the flag. In the middle of the cross, a national bird of Dominica (sisserou parrot royal ) in the red circle and surrounded by ten green stars is depicted . The stars represent ten communes of the island, yellow refers to the indigenous people and commodities typical of the island – bananas and citruses. Black stripe refers to the color of local residents and volcanic activity of the island, whereas white color traditionally stands for peace and crystal clear waters of the local rivers.
Halfway between Guadaloupe and Martinique, Dominica is the only place in the Eastern Caribbean that’s still home to a sizeable population of indigenous people, the Kalinago, who’ve lived on the island since the 13th century. Owing to the Kalinago’s fierce resistance, Dominica was the last Caribbean island to be colonized – by the British in 1763.
Mother Nature may have been especially generous with Dominica, but it also deals it the occasional hardship in the form of hurricanes and tropical storms. Most recently, in August 2015, Tropical Storm Erika wreaked major havoc from which the island is still recovering.
