After Spain ordered Catalonia to remove pro-independence symbols from public buildings, Catalan president Quim Torra responded Thursday by replacing a banner with a yellow ribbon outside the regional government’s headquarters with another one. Since coming to power in June 2018 a large banner has hung on the Barcelona building featuring a yellow ribbon—a symbol of protest against the imprisonment and trial of separatist leaders for their role in a failed attempt to declare independence in 2017 -- along with the message, “Free political prisoners and exiles”.
