Do you believe that the present flag adequately represents the Virgin Islands? Why?


Yes, because a flag represents an entire country.

Some would argue that there are 50 stars on the flag, and none represent the Virgin Islands or even the District of Columbia.

However the flag represents not just the properties of America, but the cultures, icons, history and so much more about the country.
