Our Symbol

The Axe of Chango - It embodies the union of the founding members of the group. The Red, Black and Green flag represents the struggle for self determination by African Americans here in the United States. The Lares flag represents the independence of Puerto Rico, but more specifically a war to end Spanish colonialism and abolish slavery, El Grito De Lares. Together these flags stand for the unification of all oppressed people, in particular those of the African Diaspora and the Indigenous in the Americas. It also echoes a voice from our ancestors of resistance in the understanding that we must yield a weapon of justice, the two headed ax of Chango
