Flags of the World: Cuba

Taken from the American flag, the Cuban flag includes the colors red, white, and blue. It was officially adopted on May 20, 1902 after their liberation. This flag is also known as the “Lone Star.”

It was designed by Narciso Lopez all the way back in 1848. It was used throughout the liberation movement and was hoisted for a short amount of time in 1850 but wasn’t adopted as the official ensign until over 50 years later.

The blue bands alternate with white bands and represent the three historic divisions of the island. The white bands symbolize independence. The left hand side of the flag features a red horizontal triangle with a single five pointed star. The triangle itself represents equality, liberty, and fraternity, while the red color stands for the blood shed in the struggle for independence.
