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.
