Cabo Verde


From independence in 1975 to 1996, Cabo Verde (known until late 2013 as Cape Verde) shared the same anthem as Guinea-Bissau, to reflect a proposed merger of these two Portuguese speaking nations. However, when that failed to materialize, Cabo Verde change her flag and anthem to have national symbols more unique to their own nation.
