The Puerto Rican flag has two very important dates June 11, 1892, when it was created, and December 22, 1895, when it was first used by a group of Puerto Rican patriots who adopted the flag as a national symbol representing Puerto Ricans. However, it wasn’t until July 25, 1952, that it was officially adopted as the national flag when Puerto Rico became a Commonwealth of the United States.
