    They represent the true human tradition of
    permanent victory over cruelty and chaos."

      The Puerto Rican flag was fashioned after the Cuban flag as a demostration of solidarity with Cuba when it sought its independence from Spain.

        The origins of the current flag of Puerto Rico, adopted by the commonwealth of Puerto Rico in 1952, can be traced to 1868, when the first Puerto Rican flag, "The Revolutionary Flag of Lares", was conceived by Dr. Ramón Emeterio Betances and embroidered by Mariana "Brazos de Oro" Bracetti. This flag was used in the short-lived Puerto Rican revolt against Spanish rule in the island, known as "El Grito de Lares"

          Where did the origin of the word Borigua come from? I want to know because my daughter who is one years old is half Puerto Rican.
