The national flag of Ecuador (Spanish: Bandera de Ecuador) is a tricolor design featuring three horizontal bands of yellow at the top, blue in the middle, and red at the bottom, with the national coat of arms in the center. These colors hold profound symbolism: yellow symbolizes the abundant resources and fertile soil of the country; blue represents the sky and the sea, signifying Ecuador's access to both the Pacific Ocean and the Amazon River; and red stands for the valor and sacrifices of those who fought for independence and freedom. This flag beautifully reflects Ecuador's natural beauty, historical struggle for independence, and its commitment to a prosperous future.

The coat of arms of Ecuador is a richly detailed and symbolic emblem. Within the oval shield, it features Mount Chimborazo, one of the country's highest peaks, and a steamship sailing on the Guayas River, representing the importance of both the Andean highlands and the country's maritime trade. The golden sun, encircled by Zodiac astrological signs, signifies the duration of the March Revolution of 1845, a pivotal event in the nation's history. Surrounding the shield, the laurel branch symbolizes victory, while the palm branch represents independence and freedom. Additionally, four national flags and the condor, a powerful national symbol, signify the country's strength, pride, and greatness. The presence of the Fasces below the shield further underscores Ecuador's republican dignity. This emblem beautifully encapsulates the nation's heritage, historical milestones, and its enduring commitment to sovereignty and progress.
