"Military Roots of a Revolution" The MFA was a group of low-ranking Portuguese officers who organized a military coup in 1974. This coup led to the successful overthrowing of Portugal's authoritarian dictatorship, leading to the country's democracy. The coup was called the "Carnation Revolution" because no shots were fired and soldiers put carnations in the ends of their guns and on their uniforms. "Flower - Liberty, Fruit - Democracy, Seed - Socialism"
