The Flag of the U.S. Virgin Islands features a white background with a modified US coat of arms in the center between the large blue initials V and I. The coat of arms shows a yellow eagle holding an olive branch in its right talon and three arrows in the left with a superimposed shield of seven red and six white vertical stripes below a blue panel. The Eagle symbolizes The United States of America. The white color stands for purity. The olive branch represents peace. The three arrows represent the three major islands (Saint Croix, Saint Thomas and Saint John) which makeup the Virgin Islands. The V and I initials stand for the Virgin Islands. USVI Flag
