Cuba Flag Description :
Also known as the "Lone Star", the design of the national flag of Cuba has been borrowed from the flag of the United States.
The flag of Cuba comprises five horizontal bands: the top, middle and bottom bands are blue; and the other two are white. The blue bands represent the three historic divisions of the island, while the white bands symbolize independence. The hoist side of the flag bears a red triangle that contains a white-pointed star. The triangle represents the virtues of equality, liberty, and fraternity and the color red stands for the blood shed by the patriots in the long struggle for independence.
