Isle of Saipan Flag

Just as the Isle of Man is an overlooked part of the UK, the Isle of Saipan is an overlooked part of the United States.  Just north of Guam, Saipan is a part of the North Mariana Islands.  Siapanians are as much American as are Manians of the Isle are Brits.  So it seems fitting that similarly styled flags should united the lofty islands from one end of the Earth unto the other.

As was written by the fates and spirits of the Atlantic and Pacific, the youth of these isles are compelled to learn and speak of Shakespeare.  As English was the chosen tongue so it is the collective will of the Anglo-Oriented World that youth must bend their ears to this dead ghost upon the command of community will.  Nay they should learn of the poetic voices of Japan, China, Spain, France, or Korea.  It's a funny connection that language has.

The three legs represent the native Chamorro and the three nations that have set foot and left their mark on these islands: Japan, Spain, and the United States. 

Saipan is so off the radar that this spellcheck does not recognize it as a word!
