The Burgundian saltire, or Cross of Burgundy, represented Spanish rule in Florida from 1565 to 1763 and still flies at Castillo de San Marcos National Monument in St. Augustine, Florida and at San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico. The Cross of Burgundy is flown daily as a reminder to people today of the impact Spain and its military had for over 400 years.
