About Flag of Chile


The national flag of Chile consists of two vertical bands of white and red. At the top left hand corner of the flag, over the white band, is a blue square which contains a white five-pointed star.
The white part of the Chile flag represents the snow covered Andes mountain range. The red band in the flag represents blood shed by the national heroes in the prolonged struggle for freedom in Chile. The white star is a symbol of honor and pride and the blue square signifies the clear blue skies of Chile.

The first flag of Chile was adopted in 1817 after it achieved independence from Spain. The current version of the flag was adopted in 1912.
