4th December: Why is the Andalusian Flag Day?

The 4th of December has been since 1977 a symbolic date for andalusism due to the historic demonstrations that took place all over Andalusia in 1977 claiming for the autonomy of the region. That day where almost two million of citizens took the streets peacefully ended tragically in Malaga as a young worker, Manuel José García Caparrós, was shot dead after the police intervention. More than forty years later, the Andalusian government has given official recognition to that historic moment declaring the date as ‘Andalusian flag day’ for its importance in the later approval of Andalusia’s statute of autonomy.
