The flag of Cuba features alternating blue and white stripes with a red triangle at its hoist. On the triangle is a white, five-pointed star.

Created by Cuban writer Miguel Teurbe Tolón and general Narciso López for Cuban exiles during the mid-19th century, the Cuban flag didn’t become Cuba’s national flag until the country gained independence from the United States in 1902. In spite of a change in government in 1959 when communist revolutionary Fidel Castro came to power on the island, the flag of Cuba continued as the national flag.

The flag of Cuba made it’s way to the world of emoji in 2015 as part of Unicode’s Emoji 1.0 set. On older platforms, Cuba’s country code, CU, is displayed instead. Some platforms depict the flag as waving.
