The Cuban flag was created by Narciso López in June 25, 1849, and put together by Emilia Teurbe Tolón as its mentioned in Cuba flag map. The flag origins date from 1849, when various movements to liberate Cuba from Spanish rule emerged, mainly among Cuban exiles in the United States. Anti-Spanish Cuban exiles under the leadership of Narciso López adopted a flag suggested by the poet Miguel Teurbe Tolón. His design incorporates three blue stripes, representing the three parts that the country was divided during the independence wars, central, occidental, and oriental areas of the country, and two white stripes symbolizing the purity of the patriotic cause. The red triangle (triangle of Masonic significance) stands for the blood shed to free the nation, which is placed where the star is, symbolizing the sky turned red from the blood shed in battle. The white star in the triangle stands for independence. López carried this flag in battle at Cárdenas (1850) and Playitas (1851). Although López was not victorious, this was the first instance of the flag being raised in Cuba.

In April 1869, Narciso López flag was designated the national banner by the Congress of the Republic of Cuba in Arms. López flag was the model for the flag of Puerto Rico adopted in 1892 by the Puerto Rican Revolutionary Committee, a pro-independence group that worked under the auspices of Cuban Revolutionary Party. After the United States seized Cuba from Spain during the Spanish-American War, the Stars and Stripes flew from January 1, 1899, until independence was granted. On May 20, 1902, the Cuban national flag was hoisted as a symbol of independence and sovereignty. It has been used ever since, remaining unchanged after the Cuban Revolution of 1959. During the revolution, Cuban president Fidel Castro 26th of July Movement created a party flag equally divided in red and black, usually in horizontal stripes and often with inscriptions, which is often flown on public buildings (see Cuba flag map).

The flag of Cuba has colors and symbols that were selected to represent the history and ideals of the nation at the time of its inception. Three of the stripes are meant to symbolize the three departments of Cuba, of which the nation was divided as you can see in Cuba flag map. The other stripes were designed to symbolize purity and light. The triangle on the flag dates back to the French Revolution and represents equality fraternity and livery. The color red is used to symbolize courage and bloodshed, while the star represented Cuba as a new state that should be included in the United States. There are three colors used in the Cuban flag. These colors are red, white and blue. The flag design is made up of three blue stripes alternating with two white stripes. On the hoist side of the flag is a red equilateral triangle. Centered within the triangle is a white five-pointed star.
