The current flag of Andalusia was adopted in 1918. Blas Infante (1885-1936), the "Father" of the Andalusian Fatherland (Spanish: Padre de la Patria Andaluza), initiated an assembly at Ronda in 1918. This assembly adopted a charter based on the Antequera Constitution (a nationalist Andalusian charter that styled Andalusia as an autonomous republic inside a Spanish federal state; this constitution is known as Constitución Federal de Antequera) and also adopted the current flag of Andalusia and coat of arms as "national symbols".[1] Its name used to be Arbonaida or also Arbondaira.
