Asked by Wiki User

The standard British Territory flag (the Union Jack in the top left and blue colour on the rest) takes up the majority of the flag. In the crest there are various symbols. (working from top to bottom) The pineapple represents the past links with Jamaica (until Jamaica declared independece from the UK the Cayman Islands and Jamaica were governed as a single nation). The palm leaf represents the Silver Thatch Palm which is the national tree and associated with the rope symbol (read on). The turtle represents the rich heritage associated with the turtle harvesting (now highly protected and actually farmed on the islands as well as reintroduced to the seas) as well as the original name (Las Tortugas - Spanish for The Turtles) given to the islands by Christopher Columbus in the early 1500s when he discovered them. The rope represents the islands rich nautical heritage and rope making customs. The lion represents the link with England/UK. The 3 stars on the waves represents the 3 major islands that make up the Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman). He Hath Founded It Upon The Seas is a Bible quote and makes reference to the local religion (Christianity) as well as note on the islands founding themselves from the sea.

I don't think so. They have British flags over there and drive on the opposite side of the road like people do in Europe. I think it might be owned by Britain.
