Flag of Chile (GIF)

The flag of Chile (Spanish: Bandera de Chile), often referred to as "La Estrella Solitaria" (The Lone Star), is a simple yet symbolic design. It consists of two horizontal bands of white and red, with a blue square in the upper hoist-side corner, which contains a white five-pointed star. The blue square represents the clear Chilean sky and the Pacific Ocean that borders the country to the west. The white stripe symbolizes the snow-covered Andes Mountains, while the red stripe represents the bloodshed and sacrifices made by those who fought for Chile's independence. The single white star in the blue square is said to represent a guide to progress and honor, standing alone as a symbol of Chile's commitment to freedom and democracy. The flag's design and colors are a reflection of Chile's geography, history, and its aspiration for peace, unity, and progress.
