Flag of Argentina (GIF)


The national flag of Argentina is a tri-band of three equal horizontal bands of light blue and white. According to popular beliefs, the colors of the flag symbolize the blue sky, white clouds, and the yellow sun, and the Sun of May represents the Inca sun god, Inti. The height-to-width ratio of the flag is 5:8, and the flag was adopted in 1861.

In the national coat of arms, there are two shaking hands, expressing the unity of the Argentine provinces; a Phrygian cap and pike, symbolizing freedom and power; and a laurel crown, representing victory.

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