Flag of Cuba (GIF)

The flag of Cuba (Spanish: Bandera de Cuba) is a symbol of the nation's history and revolutionary spirit. It consists of five alternating blue and white horizontal stripes, with a red equilateral triangle on the left side, pointing towards the center. The blue stripes represent the three departments into which Cuba was divided during its fight for independence from Spanish colonial rule: Western, Central, and Eastern. The two white stripes symbolize the purity of Cuba's intentions and the peace it aspires to achieve. The red triangle stands for the bloodshed and sacrifices made during the struggle for independence. In the triangle, a single white star represents the unity of the Cuban people and their revolutionary ideals. This flag embodies the country's enduring commitment to freedom, independence, and the principles of the Cuban Revolution.

The coat of arms of Cuba is a rich and symbolic representation of the nation's history and values. It consists of a shield in front of a fasces crowned by the Phrygian cap, symbolizing freedom and liberty. The shield is surrounded by an oak branch, symbolizing the strength and power of the nation, and a laurel branch, representing honor and victory. The shield itself is divided into three parts: a blue and white striped pattern, a golden key, and a green palm tree. The blue and white stripes reflect Cuba's historical ties to Spain; the golden key signifies its historical role and geographical position as the "key to the Americas" during colonial times; and the Royal Palm Tree, the national tree of Cuba, represents the country's lush landscape and its unwavering spirit of independence. This coat of arms encapsulates Cuba's complex history and its enduring commitment to freedom and sovereignty.
