In 2021 Central America celebrated 200 years of independence from Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Costa Rica.
September 15, 1821 was the date that marked an important event in the history of Central America: the signing of the Act of Independence.
The signing of the document presented as a result of the independence of the Spanish Government.
This peaceful process, taken as an example the independence of the United States and the French Revolution, ended with inequalities and privileges, and was influenced by the ideas of Spanish Enlightened Reformism and the European Rationalist Enlightenment.
There were several factors that favored independence, among them, the influence of revolutionary ideas of the European Enlightenment, the independence of the United States of America and the feeling that Spain had forgotten Central America, occupied with the socio-political changes in the Iberian Peninsula.
In 1820, Ferdinand VII was forced to restore the constitution of 1812, implementing again in Central America the freedom of the press, so numerous publications emerged criticizing the government of the colony and defending the rights of the Central American Creoles.
The spirit of independence was further intensified.
With a common past, Central America and Spain work together so that both peoples and societies can satisfy their legitimate aspirations for development and progress, favoring political dialogue, social and economic development, the eradication of poverty and inequalities, as well as strengthening the rule of law, good governance and democratic values.
A seal with the five flags celebrates these two hundred years of history.
