Fact of the Day: Cuba Flag

Cuba's flag has remained unchanged since 1902. Despite being taken over by a Communist regime, the flag stayed the same, being quite rare for a Communist country not to use Communist colors or symbols in their national flag.

  2. That's interesting. Usually flags change with a regime takeover, I think.

  4. I didn't know that. Castro must have thought that would rile up the people more than confiscating private property.

  7. A simple, pretty flag, Adam. It's amazing how much a flag can mean. The Maple Leaf Flag of Canada stirs my heart every time I see it flying. As does the Star Spangled Banner, in spite of the difficult time our country is going through right now. I'm sure the Cuban flag means a lot to Cubans too.
