UNIT 3 - SPAIN TODAY

A. THE CONSTITUTION
The Spanish Constitution was voted on by Spanish citizens in a referendum on 6 December 1978 and then sanctioned by King Juan Carlos I on 27 December 1978. 
  • It regulates the political system in Spain and establishes the democratic principles and a parliamentary monarchy. 
  • It was written by 7 people from different political parties and then debated in the Cortes Generales

    1. GOVERNMENT
  • Spain: democratic state based on national sovereignty.
  • Parliamentary monarchy.
  • The Head of State and the Commander-in-Chief of the Spanish Armed Forces is the king Felipe VI, but he can´t pass laws.
  • The crown is hereditary.

  • 2. ORGANISATION:
  • Division of Spain: 17 Autonomous Communities and 2 Autonomous cities. They have their own local governments that share responsibilities with the Central Government. The Autonomous Communities are divided into provinces and municipalities.
  • They are governed by Statutes of Autonomy (define boundaries, name, symbols and language).

  • 3. SYMBOLS:
         - The flag:
Spain flag construction sheet.svg
  • The origin of the current flag of Spain is the naval ensign of 1785, Pabellón de la Marina de Guerra under Carlos III of Spain. Carlos III chose it himself among 12 different flags designed by Antonio Valdés y Bazán.When Carlos III became King of Spain, he realised that most of the countries in Europe used flags which were predominantly white and to avoid lamentable confusions at sea (at war), he ordered to his Minister of the Navy to present several models of flags to him, having to be visible from great distances. 
    It was not until 1843 that Queen Isabella II of Spain would make the flag official.

  • What does the spanish flag mean?

        - The coat of arms:

       - The national anthem: The Marcha Real is the national anthem of Spain. It is one of only four national anthems (along with those of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and San Marino) in the world to have no official lyrics.




       - Official language for the whole country: Castilian Spanish (but other languages are also considered official in their Autonomous Communities, such as Catalan, Basque or Galician).
