Each February 28th we celebrate the festivity of our community. The Statute of Autonomy is a Magna Carta. It was approved in 1981. This document guarantees the Andalusians:
- Freedom, equality and justice
- Fundamental rights
La Junta de Andalucía is the institution that organizes the government of the Community. It is made by Parliament and the Governing Council. Parliament represents Andalusian people, which is formed by the deputies who are chosen by vote every four years. Members make laws, elect the President of the Community and must control the Governing Council and the President. The Governing Council is formed by the President of "Junta de Andalucía" and Councillors in different areas: Education, Health, Culture, etc.
They should enforce laws and administer the money of the Community. They should allow access to all Andalusians to education, culture and a job. They should also improve health services and roads. In addition to protecting the environment and our heritage, among other things. The Superior Court of Andalucía judges people who commit crimes.
Andalucía's symbols: flag, anthem and coat of arms.
The flag of Andalusia consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width: green, white and green. The colors evoke the Andalusian landscape, symbolizes the values of peace (white) and hope in the future (green).
