These islands used to be a British colony until gaining the independence in 1973, when the current flag of the Bahamas was adopted as well. Afterwards, the economy has begun to focus on tourism and trade and this trend remained till nowadays. At the same time, a drug trafficking is a big issue and a large part of the workforce migrates to the USA every year.
