Flag of Chile (GIF)

The flag of Chile consists of two horizontal bands of white and red with a blue square in the top left corner, which bears a white five-pointed star in the center. The star represents progress, honor, and independence. The blue color symbolizes the sky and the Pacific Ocean, and the white color is for the snow-covered Andes. And the red color is a symbol of the blood spilled to achieve independence. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on October 18, 1817.

Its coat of arms includes a condor, a bird of prey of the Andes, a huemul, an animal native to Chile, golden naval crowns, symbolizing heroism, and a crest in blue, white, and red, symbolizing the power that former presidents wore on their hats.
