To represent the US Virgin Islands, this colourful design has been created by Wazah James, a Grade 10 student who is 15 years old. Wazah attends the Charlotte Amalie High School, CAHS. Charlotte Amalie is the name of the only town on St. Thomas, one of the islands of this territory.

Wazah says:

We all wish for Peace because it keeps us together.

The heart above the “peace dove” is a replica of the Virgin Islands flag.  The flag looks just like the drawing! 

Thank you to everyone involved with additional thanks to Sue Boland of the Rotary Club of St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands for coordinating the project.

Sue says, “Wazah will  receive a $100 cash prize from our Rotary group and we are also donating $100 to the school for art supplies.  It was a fun project and I thank you for asking us to participate.”

 

Virgin Islands (United States) Flag Meaning:
The letters V and I, on either side of the eagle stand for the Virgin Islands. The three arrows being held by the eagle symbolize St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John; which are the three main islands that make up the U.S. Virgin Islands. The eagle holds the olive leaf in the other claw.The white base of the flag symbolizes purity, and the eagle is displayed with the shield of the United States on its chest.
