Sandinista

The black-and-red flag of the FSLN, having symbols of death, a rifle and a machete, displayed on the wall of the Sandinista museum in Leon, Nicaragua, 12 November 2004. The Sandinista National Liberation Front (in Spanish: Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, or FSLN) is a socialist political party in Nicaragua. The FSLN is one of Nicaragua's two leading parties. Sandinistas took their name from Augusto César Sandino (1895-1934), the historical leader of Nicaragua's nationalist rebellion against the US occupation of the country in the 1930s. In 1979 the FSLN overthrew the Somoza dynasty and ruled Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990. They left power in 1990 after free elections. In 2006, the former President Daniel Ortega, the leader of the party, was re-elected President of Nicaragua.
