April 25th 1974, “A Revolução dos Cravos” (The Carnation Revolution), The Day of Freedom.    “The name “Carnation Revolution” comes from the fact no shots were fired and when the population started descending the streets to celebrate the end of the war in the colonies, carnation flowers were put on the guns’ ends and on the uniforms.”
