Here on the right side of this picture you can see a Cuban flag. This picture has been taken in Havana. The Cuban flag has been declared as official flag of Cuba in May 1902. The flag of Cuba was suggested by Miguel Teurbe Tolon who was a poet but the ideas come from Narcisco Lopez. The flag of Cuba consist of three horizontal blue stripes representing the sea surrounding Cuba; there is two horizontal white stripes between the blue stripes which is the symbol of purity and justice. On the left side there is a red triangle symbol of the blood spilled by the revolutionaries to free the Cuban nation and on it a white star representing independence. The Cuban flag has been designed after the flag of the US. The very first flag of Cuba was designed by Narciso Lopez a Venezuelan general in 1848, he wanted to help Cuba from the rule of Spain but it was not successful. It was only on the 20 May of 1902 that the flag has been declared as the official flag of Cuba and until today it is the same flag that floats. Before Lopez there were other flags which has been designed as in 1810 from Joaquin Infante, the Sun’s flag in 1823, in 1847 the Club de La Habana flag, in 1868 the flag designed the Father of Cuba, Manuel de Cespedes.
