PUERTO RICO’S FLAG

Our flag was designed after the Cuban flag with the colors inverted as a sign of solidarity with Cuba, as suggested by Lola Rodríguez de Tió.

Some celebrate Puerto Rican Flag Day on June 11th others celebrate it on December 22. Our flag was one hundred years old in 1995.

Boricuas in 1895 were fighting for independence from Spain. Some wanted independence so that Puerto Rico could be annexed to the United States.

Some hoped Puerto Rico would come into some sort of Antillian alliance or confederation.

Both sides worked together in one accord.

A group of Puerto Rican patriots in New York City worked on this project and that is where our flag was born. It was then a revolutionary flag in defiance of the Spanish reign. The reason they did not use the Lares Flag was because it represented a defeated effort. They wanted a new flag.
