Designed by textile designer Debbie Sun of St. Croix through a grant awarded by the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts, the U.S. Virgin Islands’ official textile was unveiled last year.

Turquoise represents the water that surrounds the Virgin Islands, royal blue represents the deep sea harbor, pink represents conch shells, white represents sacks of flour, yellow represents the territory’s official flower (the Ginger Thomas), green represents the natural resources of the Virgin Islands and red stands for strength and love.
