History of the Flag of Panama
Officially adopted in 1925, after Panama gained independence from Colombia, the flag of Panama was designed many years before. Maria Ossa de Amador created the first flag of Panama in 1903 from designs created by her son, Manuel Amador Guerrero.
Before the current flag design, the design proposed was similar to the flag of the USA, with thirteen red and yellow stripes, reflecting the nation's associations with the United States, Spain, and Colombia. In the blue canton in the upper left corner of this design, there were two suns connected in the middle, representing North and South America, to reflect Panama's location as the link between the continents.
