History of the Academy

La Bandera


The Colors
As the Academia General Militar didn’t have its own Colors at the very beginning it chose the Colors that belonged to the Infantry Academy. In 1885 Queen Maria Cristina de Habsburgo embroidered the original Colors cloth and it was handed to the Academy on July 17th 1886. The Colors was embroidered with the following inscription,
“S.M. la Reina Maria Cristina a la Academia General”
(Her Majesty Queen María Cristina to the Academia General Militar).

 His Majesty King Alfonso XIII handed the Colors to the AGM on the 2nd Epoch reopening.

 The Colors along with its streamers – as well as its old Colors cloth - are watched over in the Colors Hall of the Academia General Militar. This Colors has been kissed by thousands of Spaniards with intense emotion following General Galbis’s wise words,

“Quien sirva en esta Academia y jure esta Bandera, aunque quiera ser traidor no podrá serlo nunca”
 (“Those who serve this Academy and swear allegiance to this Flag, can’t become traitors even if they want to become so”).
