Chile

The current Chilean flag, which was conceived by José Ignacio Zenteno and designed by Antonio Arcos, was declared the official flag in 1817, during Bernardo O’Higgins’ government. The blue of the Chilean flag represents the blue of the Chilean sky and of the Pacific Ocean, the white is the snowy white of the high peaks of the Andes, and the red represents the blood of those who sacrificed themselves in the fight for independence. The five pointed star represents the powers of the state. Sometimes confused with the very similar flag of Texas, it should be remembered that the Chilean flag, influenced by the American flag, was commissioned 22 years before that of Texas.”
