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

mibanderalatina4

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.
