   50 Years of Sir Turtle.
Turtles have always been a large part of the Cayman Islands' history. From the spotting by Christopher Columbus in May 1503 and the naming of the islands Las Tortugas to a staple in the Caymanian diet even today. While turtles have come and gone one has reached the iconic stature requiring the name of Sir.

The unofficial national logo was created by Suzy Soto in 1963. It was sold to the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism for $1 in the early 1970s.

A variation of the original logo included a flying scarf and is used as the symbol of Cayman Airways.
