Paraguay Flag Description
The flag of Paraguay has three horizontal bands of equal width in red, white, and
blue from to to bottom. Unlike any other national flag, the flag of Paraguay is unique in that the front (obverse) of the flag of Paraguay is different from the back (reverse). On the front of the flag, the national coat of arms is placed in the center of the white stripe. Centered on the back of the flag is the seal of the national treasury.

The coat of arms of Paraguay has a yellow star on a blue circle, framed by a palm branch and an olive branch, encircled by a red band with "Republica del Paraguay" across it. On the reverse, the seal of the treasury has a golden lion, a staff topped with the Phrygian cap, a symbol of liberty. A red banner curves above, reading "Paz Y Justicia," which means "peace and justice."

The flag of Paraguay is very similar to the flag of the Netherlands, which features the same three horizontal bands, without a seal or emblem.
