handwritten on the sail is the following quote by José Martí (Cuban poet and revolutionary hero) in the original Spanish on one side and with an English translation on the reverse:

“No me pongan en lo oscuro
A morir como un traidor
¡Yo soy bueno, y como bueno
Moriré de cara al sol!”

"Do not put me in the dark
To die like a traitor;
I am good, and like a good thing
I will die with my face to the sun!"
