The Island of Enchantment
Puerto Rico's flag was first used in 1895 to rally support for
independence for Puerto Rico and Cuba from Spanish rule. The
flag was designed after the Cuban flag with the colors inverted as a sign of
its close ties with Cuba. It was officially adopted by the U.S. Commonwealth
in 1952 as the national Puerto Rican flag. The flag of Puerto Rico is flown only in company
of the United States flag.
The blue equilateral triangle represents the three branches of the Republican government.
The white five-pointed star in the center of the triangle stands for the island Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
The three red stripes symbolize the blood that nurtures the government or that of the brave,
and two white stripes symbolize the rights of man, victory, and freedom.
