The flag of Argentine πŸ‡¦πŸ‡· is strikingly similar to the flag of Uruguay, especially by its blue-and-white design and yellow symbol of sun, which represents the Inca god of sun called Inti. The white stripe is surrounded by two pale blue stripes and a symbol of the sun is located in its middle. The flag was probably designed in 1812 by general Manuel Belgrano, the Argentine patriot that strongly opposed to Spanish domination. The general was allegedly inspired by the Argentine blue sky above the battlefield, or perhaps by the blue military cockades of his soldiers. Still, there are doubts whether he really was the author of the flag.
