Dry Tortugas Flag - Key Way West Isles

The Dry Tortugas flag has, but of course, a 'Tortuga' upon it.  The Dry Tortugas is the oldest part of the 50 states.  The shell has 13 areas for the 13 original colonies.  Likewise there are 50 scales for each of the 50 states.  There are three starfish on the flag as well.



The islands were named by Ponce de Leon himself.
