"A powerful idea, waved before the world at the proper time,
can stop a squadron of iron-clad ships,
like the mystical flag of the Last judgement."
José Martí, "Nuestra América" (Our America), 1881.
*****Comment: 'El Apostol de la Independencia Cubana' translates into 'The Apostle of Cuban Independence'. It is an honorary title often used to refer to the Cuban national hero José Martí (1853-1895).
