Flag of Guatemala 🇬🇹

Flag of Guatemala

The flag of Guatemala 🇬🇹, which has been used in its current form since 1871, consists of three vertical stripes in blue, white and blue colors. In the middle of the white stripe, there is a national coat of arms that also dates from 1871. It depicts a national bird quetzal holding a scroll with an inscription "LIBERTAD DE 15 de Septiembre 1821" - this day Guatemala was freed from the Spanish rule. The emblem is bounded by a wreath and also by two rifles, which have to remind guerrilla war that did not end until 1996. The colors blue and white are common to all Central American countries, where two blue stripes represent the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, but also independence. The white color symbolizes peace.
