Anguilla is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean. The territory consists of the main island of Anguilla, and a number of surrounding small islands and cays. It is believed that Columbus sighted the island during his second voyage in 1493.

In 1650, English settlers from Saint Kitts started to settle on the islands and Anguilla became a British colony. It was administrated together with other islands during the early colonial period. In 1962, Anguilla gained full internal autonomy together with Saint Kitts and Nevis.

In 1967, Anguilla declared the separation from Saint Kitts and Nevis following a referendum. However, only in 1980, Anguilla was allowed to formally secede from Saint Kitts and Nevis and become a separate British Crown colony.
