The flag of Chile comprises two horizontal bands of equal width: white on top and red on the bottom, with a blue square of the same height as the white band positioned in the canton (upper left corner). Within the blue square lies a white five-pointed star at its center.
The blue color in the Chile flag is emblematic of the sky and the vast Pacific Ocean. The white represents the snow-capped peaks of the majestic Andes Mountains. Red signifies the blood shed during the country’s struggle for independence. The solitary white star within the blue field symbolizes progress and honor. It reflects Chile’s aspirations for advancement and dignity as a nation.
