Flag of El Salvador

Flag of El Salvador

The flag of El Salvador is composed of three horizontal stripes where the outer ones are dark blue and the middle one is white. These colors are typical of the states of the former United Provinces of Central America, a member of which Salvador was along with Honduras, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Two blue stripes denote the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean surrounding Salvador and the white stripe symbolizes peace. In the middle of the white stripe, a coat of arms of El Salvador, which depicts a triangle referring to the three pillars of the Republic - the executive, legislative and judicial powers, is placed. Furthermore, there are five volcanoes and a red cap, which is commemorating the abolition of slavery. Five blue flags represent the five former members of the fourteen provinces and the parts of the laurel wreath stands for individual states.
