Flag


This is the flag of Uruguay, designed by Joaquín Suárez. It is officially in effect since July 1830. There are four blue stripes and five withes, they represents the nine provinces that existed at the time of the independence.
The sun is a symbol of independence, it is the"Sun of May".

Do you always have to put in the face when you draw your flag? Looks difficult!

I love the blues in your photo and the color accents of the building.

I have always found this flag beautiful. Interesting to learn about its background. And a nice picture of it.
