Narciso Lopez designed the Cuban flag in 1849 in the midst of various Cuban liberation movements. The three blue stripes represent three parts of Cuba, divided by war. The two white stripes symbolize the purity of the patriotic cause. The red triangle represents the blood spilled to free Cuba, while the white star represents independence. In 1902 Cuba adopted this flag as a symbol of their newly gained sovereignty and it has remained unchanged since.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Cuba’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
