The current flag
Finally, the flag of the Republic was approved only in 1925, before that periodically in the image and interpretation were made adjustments, and the political vicissitudes taking place in the country, did not allow to come to a single decision on this issue.
Now the main symbol of the country’s independence is as follows: the canvas depicts four equal-sized squares. One of them has a blue star on a white background, the other one is red, the other two rectangles have a solid red and blue color.
With regards to the interpretation of this image, there are several versions. Political, actually the main, regards two equal, but different in color stars, as a symbol of two ruling parties in the country – liberals and conservatives. According to another version, a solid blue rectangle is the sea that washes the land of Panama, red is the sea of blood of revolutionaries who laid down their heads for freedom, and the stars are a symbol of the importance of peace.
According to the residents of Panama, the colors of the national flag symbolize blue best qualities of local residents, red-the inviolability of state power, law and order. Local people believe that this flag fully reflects the national core values.
