Weekly Photo Challenge: Victory

Hasta la victoria siempre

Hasta la victoria siempre

The face of Che Guevara has become an iconic image, used as a symbol of protest as well as in pop-culture such as fashion accessories and street art.

It is a shame that I did not even realize that this is one of his most famous quotes!

Hasta la victoria siempre” translates to “Until victory always“.
