Flag Of Peru

History and flag change

The first flag, as a symbol of independence, was adopted back in 1820 and represented two crossed red triangles on a white background. In the center of the flag, there was an oval with a Laurel wreath, inside of which there were mountains and the sun. This drawing had quite a symbolic basis, at the time of the landing of the liberators’ army on the coast where the sun rose on a clear background of rocks.

The flag with the coat of arms is an official attribute of the government and is used at all high ranking events. The usual flag can be widely used for any purpose.

The date of June 7 was adopted as the national flag day, and it was not chosen by chance. Exactly on this day the battle of Arika took place. During it Chile and Peru found their modern borders.

History and myths about the symbols

The color of the flag is also chosen not by chance. There are several versions of the appearance of such colors. The first of them says that the colors of the flag symbolize the Peruvian Legion, who liberated the people from the oppressors. While the colors itself arose not by chance, allegedly General de San Martin, first stepped on the shore of Pisco, saw the famous Chilean flamingos, which pleased the eye with shades of bright scarlet and white spectrum.

Many historians agree with the version of the Peruvian Legion, but believe that the colors were divided on a completely different principle.
