Los Barbados, later shortened to Barbados was named by the Portuguese who discovered the island in the 16th century after the bearded fig tree, which sends aerial roots from its branches making it look like it is a bearded tree. Barbados was first settled by the British in 1627 and remained a British colony until it gained full independence in 1966. Barbados maintains ties to the British monarchy as a member of the Commonwealth. The official language of Barbados is English, the dialect widely spoken on the island by nationals is called Bajan. Barbados has one airport, Grantley Adams International; Barbados is serviced by a number of international airlines. Barbados' capital and main city is Bridgetown.
