The striped design of the Bolivian flag consists of three colors: red, yellow and green. Each has its own specific meaning. According to the Bolivian government:
The red stripe represents the blood of the heroes shed for the birth of the nation and the preservation of the republic.
The yellow stripe represents the richness of the land and the natural resources.
The green stripe represents the richness of Bolivia’s nature (environment) and hope, which is a principal value of the Bolivian society.
I will explain the intricate center of the flag in a future blog.
