"This flag with the cross of Santa Eulàlia spread today here in the square is an example of a shared struggle, in this case with Catalans for the Independence of Cardona, Motards Independentistes and other local and territorial CDRs."

The Catalan black flag or of Donec Perficiam (until successful, motto of the Catalan royal guards in the 18th century) was designed by the Reeixida foundation in 2008 and means "non-surrender".

It was not until July 2014 that it was redesigned, a white star and the cross of Santa Eulàlia, patron saint of Barcelona, ​​were added.
