The Jamaican flag tells an important story in my life. An example, my Jamaican flag is important because it represents where I'm from and where my family is from. When I found out I was Jamaican, I was shocked. My flag's importance is because it represents the food my country makes -- good food (and it's all over New York City, so Americans love our food). Another example of how my flag is important is because it represents the music they make in Jamaica. Anywhere I go in the Bronx, I hear Jamaican music and it reminds me of where I am from. In summary, my Jamaican flag tells an important story in my life and it makes me so proud.
