Flag of Ecuador

The flag of Ecuador, which was adopted in 1960, consists of three horizontal stripes of yellow, blue, and red color in the ratio 2:1:1. Until 1833 Ecuador was a part of so called Gran Colombia along with Colombia, Panama, and Venezuela. Therefore, the colors of the flag refer to the colors used on the flags of all fromer members of this federation. Another interpretation says that the yellow and red refer to Spain and the blue color stands for the ocean separating the country from Spain. Allegedly, the flag was designed by the leader of the resistance against Spanish domination general Francisco de Miranda. The coat of arms in the middle of the flag, which is often omitted, displays the Andean condor prepared to defeat any enemy and to protect the Ecuadorian nation under his wings.
