CNC symbol

National Congress of the Canaries (Spanish: Congreso Nacional de Canarias; CNC) is a separatist political party in the Canary Islands, Spain.

It supports independence for the Canary Islands. The CNC was founded in 1985 by Antonio Cubillo, former general secretary of MPAIAC, after Cubillo returned from Algiers, where he lived.

CNC achieved representation in a municipal council of the Canary Islands only once, in the 1987 elections. It won 819 votes (6.47%) in the municipality of Arrecife (Lanzarote) and won one seat. In 1991 CNC made a coalition with FREPIC-AWAÑAK under the name "Coalición Canarias por la Independencia". However, the CNC obtained less votes than when it had gone to the elections on its own. Presently it doesn't take part in the electoral process of the Canary Islands and it shows few signs of political activity.

The CNC's symbol consists of Berber letter "Z"[1], which is a controversial Canarian symbol. Few Canarians, as the polls show, support Antonio Cubillo's policy of "reverting to Berber roots."[2]
