Flag of Chile 🇨🇱

Flag of Chile

Chilean flag 🇨🇱 bears the colors of flag of the United States and it has origins in the period of struggles for liberation in 1817. The flag is composed of red and white horizontal stripes, and a blue square with a white five-pointed star in the upper left part of the flag. White should symbolize, like the name of the country itself (Tchili means snow in the local language), the snowy peaks of the Andes. The blue represents the sky beneath which blood was shed during the local struggles for independence. These fights are reminded by the red stripe. The origin of the star is associated with the Chilean Indians - its white color allegedly represents the unity and freedom of the nation, and the five points represent the five original provinces of the country.
