The Virgin Islands – a piece of Danish history

In the 1600’s a large part of the West Indies was colonized by the European empires. Also Denmark was a colonial power in these times and colonized the Virgin Islands. The Danish West Indian and Guinean company annexed the two uninhabited islands of St Thomas and St John in 1672 and 1713 respectively and in 1733 the company purchased the island of St Croix and added it to the Danish colony of West India, which had been named so after the company that led the colonization.
The purpose of the colonization was to include the islands in the triangular trade with weapons being shipped to Africa, slaves being shipped to the Danish West Indies where they worked in the sugar plantations, and subsequently sugar and rum being shipped to Denmark. Slavery was abolished in 1848, and in 1917 Denmark sold the islands to the United States for 25 million dollars.

From plantation to the culture of today

It was of course not a proud period in Danish history to be involved in slavery, still the Scandinavian heritage is clearly represented in West Indian architecture, tradition and city names. The Danish colonization laid the foundation for the current way of life and the people that you meet today on the Virgin Islands. For example Danish holidays are still celebrated. The islands did not only change their nationality in 1917, they also had a change of names, when the Danish West Indies the United States Virgin Islands. The islands were turned over to the United States on the 31st of March 1917, and the day is still celebrated. Both Denmark and the United States are applauded for the peaceful way in which the transfer of authority took place. You will experience this heritage when you visit the enchanting Virgin Islands.
