The national flag of Bolivia (Spanish: Bandera de Bolivia) consists of three horizontal stripes, red, yellow, and green, with a Bolivian coat of arms in the center. While the red color represents the brave soldiers of Bolivia, the green color symbolizes fertility, and the yellow color refers to the country's mineral deposits.

The emblem features a rising sun, the Chapel of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a llama, a sheaf of wheat, and a palm tree. Also, the stars in the emblem represent the departments of Bolivia.

The Bolivia flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
