Latin American flag

Birth of the Latinamerican Flag

mibanderalatina1

On Saturday, June 16, 2007 around noon time and while I was painting in my New York study I received a call from an American friend. She said, Larry I am in downtown Washington D.C., it is a sunny and warm day and I see a great march with lots of people carrying banners about immigration reform that I totally support. I also see people carrying American flags and flags of the Latin American countries. She also told me, you know that I like Latin culture, the food and the music, but I am wondering - is there a symbol that represents all Latinos.

The answer was up to me. However, a single emblem cannot represent the diversity of the Latin culture and I decided to investigate and learn more about the philosophy and the needs of our Latin community to design the symbol that could represent us all.

It was the great march of the million of signatures organized by Eddie Sotelo, "El Piolin", well-known Latin, morning radio host and whose program "El Piolin in the morning" airs daily from Los Angeles to all the United States.

The march, an impressive movement of people, left Los Angeles and came across land from coast to coast to arrive in Washington and to deliver to the Congress of the United States and to the White House, the million of signatures collected in support of the legalization of undocumented immigrants.

Objective for the creation of the Latinamerican Flag

The multicolor design of the Latinamerican flag is comprised of all the flags of all countries in Latin America and, therefore, it will be a great source of education for the children and for the community in general about the different flags and the history of each one of our Latin countries.

Getting to know each other better, will strengthen our ties of unity and will help us keep our cultures alive and thriving.

Projections for the future of the Latinamerican flag

The purpose is to carry our Latinamerican flag with pride to all cities in the United States with a large Latin community as well as to all the Latin American countries and to all regions of the world where Latin Communities exist, as a symbol of unity among our people.

The objective is to create a Latin wave or (Latin mania) in the United States and in all Latin America to bring a message of unity and tolerance among our nations.
