THE DOOR IS GOLD NOW

I do not know if this picture is real.

I don’t know if it’s been photo-shopped.

I don’t really want to find out because, in my mind, this is the color it should be now.

If it’s still the original Puerto Rican flag colors or the black and white colors,

it’s still alright.

If it’s really gold, I commend the artist.

The color of the Olympic Medal which Mónica Puig won at the Río 2016 Olympic Games.

She’s a proud Puerto Rican who made the Island vibrate and resonate with her as she accomplished her gold dreams and dedicated her win to her country.

Thank you, Mónica!

The original story behind the door

By Andrew S. Vargas

 In San Juan’s historic center there is a giant colonial door bearing an image of the Puerto Rican flag.

Known appropriately as “La Puerta de la Bandera,” the mural boldly asserts its presence from the side of an abandoned historical building on a busy commercial strip, where on any given day a gaggle of tourists flashing peace signs can be found taking turns at photos.

Since it was first painted by local artist Rosenda Álvarez four years ago with permission from the building’s owner, La Puerta has emerged as an emblematic fixture of Old San Juan and a symbol of national identity.
