Concept and philosophy of the design and colors of the "Latinamerican Flag"


The multicolor design of the Latinamerican flag is cheerful and full of hope, reflecting the spirit of the Latin people and it is based on the colors that are most prevalent on the Latinamerican flags: blue, red, and white.

The 20 suns on the upper left side and the color stripes around them are described here:

THE SUN: We are the light that shines at dawn, the renewed and strong daily force.

RED: It signifies the passion and the strength with which we fight to achieve our dreams. It also represents the blood shed by our people in their fight for freedom. In addition, just in the same manner, it represents the blood that is shed on the border desert or the seawaters by those who dreamt of a better life in the United States but never reached their goals.
The red color also reminds us of those blood ties that bind us together as one culture where ever we go, and that hold us together along with the love for our far away families.

BLUE: This color shows our character. It represents our loyalty, justice, honesty, intelligence, truth and our future. Blue is the color of the sky that we see every morning when we dream of better opportunities, because to be a Latin is to be a dreamer and because we dream of success to help our loved ones that need us.

WHITE: It is the purity, the innocence and the peace and integrity that are characteristic of the Latin people.

Creation of the Latinamerican Flag


The artistic design of the ‘Latinamerican Flag", was created as a result of the need of a symbol that represents our Latinamerican continent, and the growing Latin Hispanic-speaking population in the United States. The big social movements of our history have always had a symbol of unity that represents them in their struggles during their process of transforming the world. People that march carrying a symbol, a single flag, are people that will demonstrate its unity in all aspects: social, political, cultural, philosophic etc., and only with unity we will make Latinamerican big.

However, the complex diversity of our community could not be represented in just one symbol. This flag had to reunite all the emblems of each one of the Latinamerican countries, to allow the citizens of each one of our countries to feel identified with their own symbols and at the same time allowing all of us to know each other better, strengthening our ties of unity and solidarity.

After two years of research about the political, economic and philosophic needs of our Latin Community, and after several trial designs, it was possible to unite all the Latinamerican flags in just one flag. This is how the "Latinamerican Flag" was born to pay homage to our Latin culture and our diversity.

To build a foundation to help the disadvantaged communities in the United States


The creation of the Latinamerican Flag Foundation using revenues from sales will use economic donations to help the different not for profit organizations that work arduously to help low income immigrant communities in the United States in education, economics, social life and cultural issues.

This Foundation will create university scholarships to help students of families with low income to continue their higher education. The Foundation will also help the children and youngsters that due to economic problems cannot complete their high school in the United States.

To create a labor market in the United States


The Latinamerican flag project will create a large labor market in the United States. The company "D'Arrigo Gallery", in the process of designing and printing the flag in cloth, paper, magnets, buttons, stickers, t-shirts, hats, bags, key chains etc. will generate business for the printing industry, as well as for the sewing and design industries. When making the flag available in cellular phones, newspapers, magazines, the internet, television and all media methods, the reproduction of the flag will also generate business for printing shops, communications etc. As a result, a labor market will open up for many people.
