GRITO DE LARES

(The Lares Cry)

148 years ago today was El Grito de Lares

The smaller star on La Borinqueña’s costume is inspired by the Lares flag .

The Grito de Lares (English: Cry of Lares) – also referred to as the Lares uprising, the Lares revolt, the Lares rebellion, or as the Lares revolution – was the first major revolt against Spanish rule in Puerto Rico.

The short-lived revolt was planned by Ramón Emeterio Betances and Segundo Ruiz Belvis.

It began on September 23, 1868 in the town of Lares, for which it is named, and spread rapidly to various revolutionary cells throughout the island.
