Flag of Peru (GIF)

The Peruvian flag is a vertical tri-band with red outer bands and a single white middle band. The red color represents the spilled blood for the struggle for independence, and the white represents peace and justice. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted in 1824.

The shield on the coat of arms includes a vicuna animal and a cinchona tree, symbolizing the country's natural wealth, and a cornucopia horn pouring gold. The shield is surrounded by national flags, and above it is a civil crown of oak branches.

The Peru flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
