Costa Rica Flag

The explanation for the symbols of the Costa Rican Flag

The flag of Costa Rica was adopted on 27 November 1906. It has undergone many changes since the first flag, raised in 1821. Until 1848, most of the flags of Costa Rica wear white and light blue. These colours are those of the Federal Republic of Central America, which included several states and provinces. The flag is then quite similar to the current one of Argentina: horizontal light blue and white stripes. In 1848, Costa Rica adopts a flag bearing the colours of the French flag : blue - white - red. Indeed, the country wants to rely on the ideals of the French Revolution to develop its society. The strips are placed horizontally : blue represents the sky, intellectual thought, eternity. Red is the symbol of the blood spilled by the soldiers of independence. White, meanwhile, evokes the wisdom and free thought. In the red stripe are represented the arms of Costa Rica, on which the three volcanoes of the country appear.
