British Virgin Islands Flag Meaning - When Columbus discovered the British Virgin Islands in 1493, he named them 'Las Virgenes' in honor of St. Ursula and her companions. The eleven lamps which surround the figure of St. Ursula each represent 1,000 of the 11,000 Virgins who, according to legend, were martyred along with St. Ursula. The Union Jack represents the country's ties to Britain. BVI is a British Overseas Territory.
