28th February Festivity of Andalucía (Vocabulario Intercambio Idiomas Málaga)

The Statute of Autonomy

The Statute of Autonomy was approved by the election of the Andalusian region in 1981. Each February 28th we celebrate the festivity of our community.

The Statute of Autonomy is a document that is the most important law for the Andalusians after the Spanish Constitution.

This document guarantees the Andalusians:
  • Freedom, equality and justice
  • Fundamental rights
  • Institutions


La Junta de Andalucía is the institution that organizes the government of the Community. It is formed by the Parliament and the Governing Council.
  • The Parliament represents the Andalusian people, which is formed by the deputies who are chosen by vote every four years. The 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 the Junta of Andalusia and his Councillors in different areas. There are Areas of Education, Health, Labour, etc. They must enforce laws and administer the money of the Community. They must allow access to all Andalusians to education, culture and a job. They must also improve health services and roads. In addition to protecting the environment and our heritage, among other things.
  • The Superior Court of Andalusia judges people who commit crimes.

The symbols of the Community: the flag, anthem and coat of arms

The flag of Andalusia consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width: green, white and green.
The colours evoke the Andalusian landscape, they symbolize the values of peace (white) and hope in the future (green). The Greek hero Hercules appears between two columns in the shield, he is dominating two lions as a sign of strength.
At the bottom it says: "Andalucia itself, for Spain and humanity".
