The Catalan Republic (Catalan: República Catalana, IPA: [rəˈpubːlikə kətəˈlanə]) is one of the terms adopted by Catalonia when it declares itself as a sovereign political subject. The constitution of a Catalan State is currently the aim of a broad-based grassroots movement for Catalan independence.

A Catalan Republic, also known as the Catalan State (Estat Català, IPA: [əsˈtat kətəˈla]), was a state has so far been proclaimed four times:

Of these four proclamations, the first (1641) was performed with the objective to establish the complete independence and the rest (1873, 1931 and 1934) to establish the sovereignty and the state character of Catalonia inside an Iberian or Spanish Federal Republic.

In November 2015, the Catalan parliament adopted a declaration of intent to form a new independent republic no later than 2017.[3]
