Nicaragua's flag was first accepted on September 4, 1908, although it was not officially designated as the national flag until August 27, 1971. The flag's design is influenced by the flags of the Federal Republic of Central America and Argentina.
Nicaragua's flag is one of just three national flags in the world (the others being El Salvador and Dominica) that includes the color purple. The flag has three horizontal blue, white, and blue bands with a central coat of arms. The blue color represents Nicaraguans' unity and loyalty, the white color represents the nation's purity and justice, and the coat of arms is a symbol of nationalism and sovereignty.
