Cuba Flag

The national flag of Cuba contains a red equilateral triangle with a five pointed star at the hoist and five blue and white bands. The three blue bands represent the three old divisions of the island and the two white bands symbolize the strengths of independent ideals. The red triangle stands for equality, fraternity and freedom as well as the bloodshed in the country's struggle for freedom.  The white star represents the absolute freedom of the Cuban people.  The flag was designed during the liberation movement from Spain but it was not officially adopted until May 20, 1902 when independence was granted by the US.
