The central white stripe represents peace and unity among the nation's diverse population. At the center of the white stripe, the national coat of arms is displayed, featuring a bold image of five volcanoes, a clear reference to the country's rugged landscape, as well as the rising sun, which signifies progress and a new beginning. The flag of El Salvador is a powerful emblem that embodies the nation's history, geography, and its enduring quest for peace, unity, and prosperity.

The coat of arms of El Salvador is a powerful and symbolic emblem that encapsulates the nation's identity and history. At its core, a bold golden amber triangle represents the three branches of government (executive, legislative, and judicial), while inside the triangle, five conic volcanoes symbolize the unity of the five original member states of the United Provinces of Central America. Above the volcanoes, a red Phrygian cap on a golden staff radiates rays of glory, signifying the ideals of the Salvadoran people. The horizon, in a dawn "red sky at morning," marks the date of El Salvador's Independence Day in 1821. At the top, a rainbow arch symbolizes a biblical covenant of peace, and beneath the triangle, a white scroll bears the national motto "Dios, Unión, Libertad" (God, Union, Liberty). The triangle is encircled by a variegated green laurel wreath, divided into 14 parts representing the country's administrative units, and the entire design is encompassed by golden amber letters spelling out "REPÚBLICA DE EL SALVADOR EN LA AMÉRICA CENTRAL" (Republic of El Salvador in Central America) in bold capital letters. This emblem eloquently weaves together history, nature, and national values to represent El Salvador's rich heritage and aspirations.
