The island was discovered by Christopher Columbus and was named after his brother Bartolomeo. St. Barths was a Swedish colony in the 1800s and here the Swedish West Indies Company, a trading company, was formed. The capital Gustavia, once called Carénage, was renamed to Gustavia to pay homage to King Gustav III. The island’s coat of arms symbolically still has three crowns on it. The language, food and culture, however, is French, since the island was later sold to France.
