Flag of Paraguay 🇵🇾

Flag of Paraguay

The flag of Paraguay 🇵🇾 has been adopted in 1842 by President Rodriguez de Francia, a great admirer of France. That is why he chose the colors of the French tricolor for the national flag, however, he decided to place the stripes horizontally. The flag is unique because of its obverse and reverse sides are different. The center of the white stripe on the front of the flag bears a national coat of arms where a yellow five-pointed star surrounded by a green wreath and an inscription "República del Paraguay" is placed. Allegedly, the star was shining over the capital city Asuncion in 1811 when the independence of Paraguay was declared. The reverse side is decorated with an emblem of the Ministry of Finance and an inscription "Paz y Justicia" at the same place.
