Patriotic Fever!

Quiz Image

There are things that every Barbadian should know, like who is the Father of Independence and the name of our biggest superstar (hint: her name begins with 'R') but many Bajans tend to be clueless about Barbadian trivia.

So, in honour of Independence Day, Kurama Magazine has formulated this quiz to test your Patriotic IQ. This will determine how much you know about all things Barbadian. Even non-Bajans can participate. Top scorers' pictures will be featured on the web site. So, are YOU a patriotic genius?
