Hello world: just call us BDA

  • Doing Bermuda proud: when Flora Duffy achieved Commonwealth Games glory, should she have had BDA on her top?

Dear Sir,

Growing-up in Bermuda, I was always taught and told that Bermuda is abbreviated as: Bda or BDA.

Who decides to abbreviate Bermuda as, BER and/or BMU?

Does Bermuda have a say in how it should be styled? Or is this left to the whims of the myriad international organisations without any input from Bermuda?

Or do we have to be an independent state to say that we are styled thus: Bda?
