This country, near the Caribbean, called Turks and Caicos Islands, is now a British colony. The capital of the country, is Grand Turk (Grand Turk). It consists of 38 islands. All government buildings and ministries are located on this island called Grand Turk. The total area of the islands is 430 square kilometers and the population is over 25.000. Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, these tropical islands are in the southeastern part of Bahamia and close to America and Cuba.
The largest of the island’s name is “Turk”. The existence of an island in the Caribbean called for this name is because of island's origin. Although the name of a thorny plant called Melacactus in the first place about the name given to the island is similar to the Turkish fes; this claim does not reflect this fact due to the fact that the first to be raised here was the Spaniards before the British, the name of the other island was inconsistent, and the Turks did not wear fez when the island was named. There are other reasons for giving the name of “Turk” to the island.
