The Patio behind the Círculo Cubano

The Patio behind the Círculo Cubano was constructed in 1938 under the Presidency of Francisco Garcia. The large white star in the middle of the patio floor stands for the White Star called” La Estrella Solitaria" (the Lone Star) and it represents independence and freedom. This is a close-up picture of the patio floor where the members placed metal strips into the concrete to form the letters and numbers, “Abril 1938 Pres. Francisco Garcia”.
