A conch is a type of mollusc, a sea snail, and the shell of a conch is used to make a loud "booming" sound in the novel Lord of the Flies. This sound is used to call the boys to meetings. The conch is also used to symbolise democracy in the novel, as whoever holds it has the right to uninterupted speech. The phrase "Conch Republic" is not used in the novel.

Can you travel to UK with conch republic passport?

There are two salient points to consider. Firstly, there is no international air service from Nigeria to EYW (Key West Florida, USA). The closest is MIA (Miami International Airport). The second point is that the 'Conch Republic' does not possess sovereignty, meaning it is not a true recognised nation. The 'Conch Republic' was a micronation scheme begun by residents of the Florida Keys which began as a protest against the United States Border Patrol. The USBP established a blockade on the only US Highway that led from the keys onto the US Mainland. This action energised the local officials to attempt seceding from the US and declaring the small stretch of land in the keys as a sovereign nation. However, this was never taken to fruition. Today the Conch Republic is a tourism strategy where tourists can purchase faux passports, participate in the Conch Navy (a flotilla of home owner's boats), and join in annual festivities.
