CAYMAN ISLANDS

Cayman Islands flag

Cayman Islands flag
Meaning of the islands name:
Christopher Columbus discovered the islands in 1503 after winds blew him off his course from Panama to Hispaniola. He called the islands Las Tortugas (“The Turtles” in Spanish) due to the large numbers of turtles on the islands. Around 1540 the islands gained the name Caymanas, from a Carib word for marine alligators or “caiman”, an animal found on the islands.
Description flag:
The Flag of the Cayman Islands was adopted in 1959. Prior to that, the Islands had used the British flag for all official occasions.
The flag is a Blue Ensign with the Union Flag in the canton, defaced with the Islands’ coat of arms. A red ensign of this design is the civil ensign.
The Governor’s flag is a Union Flag defaced with the coat of arms

Diving on Cayman

Christopher Columbus discovered the Caymans in 1503. They remained uninhabited until well after the 1670 acquisition of the islands by the British Crown, which has held dominion over the three islands ever since.
Its superior diving conditions put the Cayman Islands on the international tourist map in the early 1950s. Despite its diminutive size, Little Cayman quickly established itself as a top diving site. Bloody Bay Marine Park has some of the best wall diving anywhere in the world.
During the next decade, Caymanians began to draw up the tax structure that would make Grand Cayman an economic powerhouse and at the same time put in place an infrastructure that has made it the undisputed capital of Caribbean tourism.

GLIMPSE – the talents of the autism community

They are painters, sculptors and photographers; poets and storytellers; musicians and creators of amazing video games. They are kids, teens and adults. Last year, a new online publication arose to celebrate the talents of autistic individuals and other developmental disabilities: GLIMPSE, offered by ICDL (The Interdisciplinary Council of Developmental and Learning Disorders). In late 2008, Volume 2 of GLIMPSE was released, and was expanded into a print book and notecards. The works are serious, humourous, deeply personal and illuminating. See it for yourself, share it with others, submit your own/your child’s work for inclusion in Volume 3, to release later this year. Find information and ordering details at www.icdl.com
