BECAUSE OF A VASE, COLOMBIA IS INDEPENDENT. History tells us that everything began with a vase. It was Friday - July 20th and market day - when a Creole went to borrow a vase. An act, ephemeral in appearance, untied in a clash between Creoles and Spanish and culminated in the independence of Colombia. Nevertheless, it is clear today that what happened by then was not a spontaneous fact like those that had typified the political colonial life. It was the consequence of several circumstances that happened one after the other and ended in a great peoples revolution. The Creoles had fundamental reasons which turned on July 20th into the drop that overflowed the glass. At the meetings gathered between1808 and 1810, in spite of the fact that the Creoles were invited, the representation was minimal: among 36 peninsular reps, there were 9 Americans. This situation made the Creoles think for the first time about the possibility of creating a State a Nation.
