Anthem Lyrics

Al combate corred bayameses

que la patria os comtempla orgullosa

no temais una muerte gloriosa

que morir por la patria es vivir

En cadenas vivir es morir

en afrenta y oprobio sumidos

del clarin escuchad el sonido

a las armas valientes corred.

Cuba Flag

Cuba Flag

Flag History The flag was designed by Cuban poet Teurbe Tolon in 1849. The star symbolizes a light which provides the way towards freedom and was taken from the flag of Texas. The triangle is a Masonic symbol of liberty, equality and fraternity. The three blue stripes stand for the three sectors into which Cuba was divided by the Spaniards. The white is for the pure intentions of the revolutionaries and for justice. Red is for the blood that was shed in the struggle for independence.
Flag Date of Adoption 20 May 1902
Flag Symbolism five equal horizontal bands of blue (top and bottom) alternating with white; a red equilateral triangle based on the hoist side bears a white, five-pointed star in the center; design influenced by the United States and Texas flags.
