Flag of Ecuador
The current flag of Ecuador was officially introduced on September 26, 1860.
What does it mean?
The red, green and blue are the colors of Francisco de Miranda, the South American revolutionist and adventurer. Yellow recalls the Federation of Greater Colombia, red means courage and blue symbolizes independence from Spain. The centered coat of arms is topped with a condor which protects the nation under his wings.
The flag of Ecuador is very similar to that of Colombia and Venezuela, which are also former members of Greater Colombia. The difference is that the Ecuadorean flag shows the condor on top of the three colors.
