Approaching Stanley from the sea, Falkland Islands
Over the years the Falklands have played host to British, French, Spanish and Argentinian settlers. The Falkland Islands are now a self-governing British overseas territory.
In 1833, when the Islands became British, many people left Scotland and Wales to make their lives there. There is now a population of just under 3,000 people.
Almost the whole of the Falkland Islands is used as pasture for sheep.
The Falkland Islands Flag
Like other British Overseas Territories, the flag of the Falklands Islands has a Union flag in the top left corner and a royal blue background, together with the country's coat of arms. The Falklands's coat of arms depicts the ship the Desire, sailing on which Captain John Davis is said to have discovered the islands in 1592. The sheep shows the importance of sheep farming the Falklands.
