Aims of this initiative for the Galician flag
We want to help people to learn about the Galician national symbols

Many Galicians are proud of their country, and flying the Galician flag is a straight way to show that noble feeling.

Since 2005, the www.BandeiraGalega.com initiative wants to help people to learn about the Galician national symbols, and to encourage people to use them in public occasions. We believe that we may be able to make a difference by working on information and promotion:

1) Information:
» We publish information and research about the historical symbols of Galicia, so people can know better the meaning of their national symbols.
» We allow the re-use and re-publishing in other media of all the content provided in this website, so the word can spread around faster and faster.

2) Promotion:
» We believe that the best way to promote the public use of the Galician symbols is just to put them in the hands of the people. For that reason, we are manufacturing and distributing the three historical flags of Galicia.
» We offer Galician flags to download for free so they can be used on websites and they can also gain exposure across the internet.
