Day Twenty-One: Jamaica

Over the summer I created over 35 achievement badges for the Withings Health Mate fitness app.

Day twenty-one is Jamaica!

-------------

“Jamaica is an island country situated in the Caribbean Sea, comprising the third-largest island of the Greater Antilles. It is the fifth-largest island country in the Caribbean. The indigenous people, the Taíno, called it Xaymaca in Arawakan, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water" or the "Land of Springs".

Once a Spanish possession known as Santiago, in 1655 it came under the rule of England (later Great Britain), and was called Jamaica. It achieved full independence from the United Kingdom on 6 August 1962. With 2.8 million people, it is the third most populous Anglophone country in the Americas, after the United States and Canada. Kingston is the country's largest city and its capital, with a population of 937,700. Jamaica has a large diaspora around the world, due to emigration from the country.”
