Cuba National Anthem

Cuba National Anthem
The Bayamo Anthem (El Himno de Bayamo)

Lyrics
Hasten to battle, men of Bayamo!
The fatherland looks proudly to you;
Do not fear a glorious death,
Because to die for the fatherland is to live.

To live in chains is to live
In dishonour and ignominy,
Hear the clarion’s call;
Hasten, brave ones, to battle!

Flag History

The Cuban flag was designed in 1848 for the liberation movement, which sought
to detach Cuba from Spain and make it into a state of the USA. The Lone Star
represented another star which would be added to “the splendid North American
constellation.” The triangle is derived from the Masonic symbol for equality,
while the five stripes stand for five provinces of the time.
