Flag of Paraguay (GIF)

The national flag of Paraguay (Spanish: bandera de Paraguay) is characterized by its three horizontal stripes: red, white, and blue. These colors are thought to be inspired by the French flag and are symbolic of ideals like independence and freedom. One distinctive feature of the Paraguayan flag is its asymmetry: the front side displays the national coat of arms, while the reverse side (see below) features the seal of the treasury. This unique flag design represents the nation's historical ties and aspirations for self-determination, and the dual symbolism of its front and back highlights the multifaceted nature of Paraguayan identity and heritage.

The coat of arms of Paraguay is a richly symbolic emblem featuring a yellow five-pointed star, encircled by a green wreath composed of palm and olive leaves. Surrounding these elements are two concentric circles, and the words "Republica del Paraguay" (Republic of Paraguay in Spanish) are inscribed. On the seal of the treasury, a yellow lion appears beneath a red Phrygian cap mounted on a pole, symbolizing courage, and the motto "Paz y Justicia" (Peace and Justice) is prominently featured. The coat of arms and seal beautifully encapsulate Paraguay's values and aspirations, representing peace, justice, and the nation's history of resilience and independence.
