Flag of Dominican Republic

Flag of Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic shares the island Hispaniola with the state of Haiti. The entire island was under Spanish rule until 1804, when the French founded Haiti in the western third of the island. Dominican Republic achieved independence in 1844. The flag of the Dominican Republic is composed of relatively large white cross that divides the flag into four fields. Upper left field and the field along the diagonal line have blue color. The remaining two fields are red. In the middle of the cross, there is a coat of arms, which depicts a shield supported by palm and olive branch bearing an inscription: "Dios, Patria, Liberta", translated as "God, country, freedom."
