Flag of chile:

This flag was adopted on October 18, 1817, just before Chile won its independence from Spain.

Chile’s flag is a red, white and blue banner with a white star. The blue square in the canton region of the flag represents the sky, the white stripe represents the snow of the Andes mountains, and the red symbolizes the blood that was spilled fighting for freedom. The single star represents the powers of the government. The height of the flag is two-thirds the width.

History of Chile Flag

Chilean law dictates strict rules concerning the display and use of the national flag. Homes and buildings must fly the flag on several different national holidays. Failure to do so could result in a fine. As late as October 2011, the law forbade the exhibition of the flag in public without official approval, on days besides the holidays requiring its display. The law also defines public mistreatment of the flag as a felony.

Every year, on July 10th, the pledge to the flag of Chile is recited on military bases across the country to commemorate the 77 soldiers that lost their lives in the 1882 Pacific War battle of La Conception. The pledge includes such honorable values as serving the fatherland and being obedient with rapidity and punctuality whether on sea, land or any other place.
