Our story

The name “Carnation Revolution” comes from the fact no shots were fired and when the population took to the streets to celebrate the end of the dictatorship and war in the colonies, Carnation flowers were put into the muzzles of rifles and on the uniforms of the army.

We Portuguese celebrate the national holiday of Freedom Day on 25 April every year to celebrate the revolution.
