Flag of Bolivia

The flag of Bolivia, whose official name is the Bolivian multinational state, has been adopted in 1851. It consists of three horizontal stripes in red, yellow and green colors. In the center of the state flag, a coat of arms is placed, however it was dropped from the national flag. The red stripe symbolizes blood shed during the struggles for freedom and also Bolivian fauna, yellow stands for mineral wealth of the country and green is to remind fertility of local land. Bolivia was originally inhabited by Aymaras and later Incas, but it was colonized by Spaniards in the 16th century and the independence has not been gained until 1825. The state was named after Simon Bolivar - the leader of the struggles for freedom.
