The Regional Minister of Transport, Ángel Garrido, presented the new logo, which will be permanent, on the anniversary of the Magna Carta. The Minister values the effort made by all Spanish people to close wounds and walk together with the rest of the European democracies. Metro has already transformed the Chueca station logo with the rainbow flag for the LGTBI+ Pride celebrations

Metro de Madrid honours the Spanish Constitution by transforming its traditional diamond at the entrances to the emblematic station of Plaza de España. Thus, from today, the logos that welcome travellers at the five entrance gates of this station will permanently display the colours of the national flag.

The Regional Minister of Transport, Mobility and Infrastructure, Ángel Garrido, presented this initiative today on the occasion of the Constitution Day to honour the Magna Carta as one of the elements uniting Spanish society, in line with the integrating role that Metro plays at a regional level.

“We thus remember the effort our society made to close old wounds and walk together with the rest of the European democracies," said Garrido. “Moreover, the flag is a symbol that represents us and, when we see it, we know we are at home," he added.

This is not the first time that Metro de Madrid has modified its logo at one of the access points to its stations. Last June, on the occasion of the celebrations of the LGTBI+ Pride, the diamond at the Chueca station donned the colours of the rainbow flag, as a symbol of diversity.

“These diamonds have come to stay because both the fight for equality in diversity and the Constitution that all Spanish people have adopted to overcome differences deserve to be permanently visible”, the Regional Minister stressed.

Interested passengers will be able to purchase a slightly smaller version of this logo, as well as the one at Chueca, in magnet or key ring format, from the underground company's online shop (latiendademetrodemadrid.com), as well as from the official shops located in the Sol and Plaza de Castilla stations.

THEMED STATIONS

The transformation of the Plaza de España and Chueca logos join the different themes that Metro is implementing in various stations to commemorate historical, cultural and social milestones. In fact, Plaza de España station already has the walls of its halls and platforms decorated with the full text of Don Quixote, an initiative that was carried out last year to celebrate Book Day and that still continues to surprise passengers.

A similar action has been carried out recently at the Rios Rosas station. On this occasion, with the full text of Fortunata and Jacinta by Benito Pérez Galdós to join the various tributes being held this year on the occasion of the centenary of the author's death.

The Rubén Darío station also honours another great figure of Spanish culture, the cartoonist Antonio Mingote, decorating every corner of this station with his illustrations and main works. At La Latina station, passengers can see historical photos of the flea market, while at Retiro, there are images of the historical park to which it gives access.

Other themed stations are Arroyofresno, where passengers can see photographs of the Guadarrama mountain range, and the Estación del Arte, with reproductions of several of the pictorial works exhibited at the museums nearby.
