Flag of Andalusia
|Use||Civil and state flag|
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". Its name used to be Arbonaida or also Arbondaira.
The colours of Andalusian flag, green and white, represent hope and peace, as the anthem says:
|La bandera blanca y verde
vuelve tras siglos de guerra
a decir paz y esperanza
bajo el sol de nuestra tierra.
| The white and green flag
comes back after centuries of war
to say peace and hope
under our land's Sun.
