The Flag Company Inc And National Flags
by Adam Bright
The history of Argentinaâ™s flag, which dates back to 1812, is wrapped in a curious mix of revolutionary fighting for independence from Spain and Incan sun worship. Argentine politician and revolutionary military leader, Manuel Belgrano designed the flag itself. He based the design on the cockade of Argentina that he created in 1812, a circular logo similar to the Argentine flag with a light blue circular band following its perimeter, a white inner band of the same width and a light blue dot in the middle creating bullâ™s-eye looking image.
The national banner of Argentina has three equivalent even groups of light blue, white, and light blue with a brilliant yellow sun with a human face known as the Sun of May focused in the white band. Observing the flag, the gaze is immediately attracted to its center, where we find its most striking feature: a human face wearing a neutral expression inside a gold disc with straight and wavy rays emitting from its center, representing a sun.
The national flag of Argentina has three equal horizontal bands of light blue (top), white, and light blue with a radiant yellow sun with a human face known as the Sun of May centered in the white band. The colors represent the clear skies and snow of the Andes; the sun symbol commemorates the appearance of the sun through cloudy skies on 25 May 1810 during the first mass demonstration in favor of independence; the sun features are those of Inti, the Inca god of the sun.
The colors of Argentina's flag may reflect the newborn nation's ties to the House of Bourbon, which was not in power in Spain at the time of Argentina's war of independence. The fighting nation may have wanted to show loyalty to Spain, rather than France and Napoleon, who had taken control of Spain at the time. Others believe that the flag represents the sky and clouds, because of the addition of the sun. However, the sun is the symbol of the Incan god of Sun, Inti.
