Catalonia — a new European state

On 11 September in Barcelona, Spain, was the largest rally for the independence of the region. Every year this day is celebrated as the national day of Catalonia commemorates the end of the siege of Barcelona in 1714, which turned to the Catalans with a loss of autonomy. About half a million people took to the streets, waving red and yellow flags under the slogan «Catalonia — a new European state!». The protestors never demanded independence from long ago experiencing an economic crisis of Spain.

Recall that Catalonia is one of the richest regions of Spain.
