Caribbean Heritage Month commemoration was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2005 to recognize the significance of Caribbean people and their descendants in the history and culture of the United States.
Flag Fantasy is extremely proud of Caribbean Contributions to the US and rest of the world not only during the month of June, but year-round!
"South America's second poorest nation is bracing for an oil boom that could catapult it to the top of the continent's rich list - and beyond. But can Guyana avoid the so-called oil curse and ensure that its newfound riches benefit all Guyanese?
"Many people still do not get how big this is," then-US Ambassador to Guyana Perry Holloway told a reception in the capital, Georgetown, last November.
"Come 2025, GDP will go up by 300% to 1,000%. This is gigantic. You will be the richest country in the hemisphere and potentially the richest country in the world.""
Despite its challenges, Haiti has evolved as a country rich in culture that is an eclectic mix of African, Taino and European elements. Haiti's art, architecture, cuisine, festivals, folklore & mythology, literature, music & dance, and religion have all been influenced by this mix of cultures. This has resulted in a Haitian Heritage that is well worth recognizing and celebrating in the US during the month of May … 2019 Haitian Heritage Month! Sak pase? N'ap boule!
Happy New Year to all our FANS, and a brand new start to the Carnival Season kicking off with Bahamas Junkanoo! Marked by vibrant color and intense brass music, this year's Junkanoo Parade competition proved to be as fierce as ever! Congratulations to Valley Boys who have already been named as unofficial winners in the A Category.
"Junkanoo, the National Festival of The Bahamas, is an expression of Bahamian art and culture. Large groups parade with elaborate costumes, dancing or playing goatskin drums, horns, bells, or whistles, as thousands watch and dance along."

Last week Norfolk State University’s Caribbean Student Association was treated to a Flag Fete Zumba class. Candace Alexander dished up her unique brand of Intense-Fyiaaaaa-Fitness in an effort to get the class whipped into tip top shape. Things got heated up, but these young ladies were resilient and kept their cool by fanning their way through the routine! A nice, vigorous workout with a Caribbean flavor! Look out for Candace's upcoming fitness launch in Newport News City Center October 28th, 2018! Keep it pumping, and stay cool with FlagFans from Flag Fantasy!
