 Michael Harris presents the history of the Island of 8 Flags to EABCWhat a rich history we have here on Amelia Island, the Island of 8 Flags. According to Michael Harris’ presentation the French were the first to arrive in 1562. Thereafter we were ruled by the Spanish from 1565-1763. The British took over from 1763-1783 and the Spanish came back in 1784-1821…. Back to the British, the French, the Spanish, etc. until today the U.S. No wonder we have so many pirates still hanging out here today. Isle the Mai, Santa Maria or whatever it was called at the time to us it is Amelia Island and it is a great place to be. Click here for more about the History of Fernandina Beach.
