The Flag of the Dominican Republic

The national flag of the Dominican Republic is one of the main patriotic symbols of the Dominicans.

Created during the Independence age, is comes from the idea of the Dominican liberal politician Juan Pablo Duarte and was designed by Concepción Bona and María Trinidad Sánchez; being flown for the first time in 1844 by the hand of the Dominican activist Francisco del Rosario Sánchez.

The flag is made by a huge white cross in the center which divides the insignia in four rectangles, outstanding in the center of the crosshead the coat of arms of the Dominican Republic.

Regarding the upper rectangles, the left one, placed beside the shaft, it dyed in ultramarine, while the right one is vermillion red. The inferior ones are opposed, being the red one on the side of the shaft and the blue one the right rectangle.

The colours used in the flag have a relevant meaning for the Dominicans. The red symbolizes the blood spilled by the fighters in the war of independence; the blue represents the sky raised above the country and from where God protects the nation and its ideas of progress while the white symbolizes the peace and union of the Dominicans.

An alternative theory considers the blue as an expression of the fight of the liberators to reach a free nation for future generations, while the white colour means the care of the nation by God.
