The Cuban flag was thought in 1849 by Narciso López. It was suggested by a poet, Miguel Teurbe Tolon. People in the country who wanted independence from Spain pushed for this flag, especially exiles living in the US. The blue represents the sea, the white stands for purity and patriotism, and the red stands for the blood shed for the country. The star represents the sky.
