Flag of Argentina (GIF)

The national flag of Argentina (Spanish: La bandera de la Argentina), known as "Flag of the Sun," consists of three horizontal stripes of light blue and white.

The light blue stripes symbolize the sky and the ocean, highlighting Argentina's geographical and maritime significance. The white stripe represents purity and peace. In the center of the white stripe, there's a golden sun with a face, known as the Sun of May, which is a reference to the Inca sun god Inti. It represents Argentina's desire for freedom and independence and has historical ties to the May Revolution. Overall, the flag of Argentina is a powerful symbol of the country's struggle for independence, its natural beauty, and its hope for a bright future.
