Puerto Rican Black Flag Women's T-shirt

Regular price $30.00

This women's t-shirt features the now infamous black and white Puerto Rico flag, also known as the bandera negra. The symbolic flag was created by a group of Puerto Rican activist/artists who repainted the famous Puerta de la Bandera mural in Viejo San Juan black and white to protest the passage of law PROMESA, also referred to as La Junta.

PROMESA, which means promise in Spanish, was a law that many believe highlights Puerto Rico's colonial status since it allows an unelected fiscal control board to manage the island's unaudited debt and budget. The flag has come to represent a symbol of protest an resistance in Puerto Rico. This shirt is sure to start a conversation.
