Amelia Island recalls its past by Barbara Gavan staff writer, Jacksonville.com As people from Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia come to Amelia Island for the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival this weekend, they know one thing: There will be plenty of shrimp to eat. But what about the other part of the festival name? Why is it called the Isle of Eight Flags? A history lesson is available at the Amelia Island Museum of History. We invite you to join us May 5th through May 2nd 2016 to visit Amelia Island and experience the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival.
