The local empanada stand. San Carlos, Colombia
The event that sparked Colombia's revolt against Spanish rule was the mere smashing of a flower vase.
Well, maybe not, but that's the story told to Colombian schoolchildren when they learn about their country's independence.
Independence Day commemorates the date of the 'flower vase incident' (el florero de Llorente), July 20, 1810, when the independence movement supposedly began.
