Previously known as Isabel II square, then Arms square till the very Carlos Manuel de Céspedes named it as it is known now-a-days as Revolution Square.

There is a full-length statue of Jose Martí on a marble pedestal in the very middle of the square done by sculptor López Mesa and unveiled on October 10th 1955. Far back on the same square but in symmetry, a sculptural rectangular group holds a big sheet with the embossed letters of the National Anthem and La Demajagua farms flag, and there is a bust of Perucho Figueredo (Writer of the word of the anthem).
