Paraguay's flag is a red-white-blue triband design that was first used in 1842. The colors are based on the colors of the French tricolor and are thought to represent independence and liberty. The flag has an interesting property in that each side has a different design.
The national coat of arms appears on the obverse side of the flag, while the treasury seal appears on the reverse. The ratio of the flag is 11:20.
The flag was redesigned in 2013 to bring it closer to its original form. The colors have been enhanced, and the coat of arms has been shrunk. The flag's colors are thought to represent bravery and purity (red), freedom and peace (white), and loyalty and generosity (blue), in that order. The flag of Paraguay is similar to the flags of most Latin American countries, as it has inherited many cultural aspects from them.
In actuality, Paraguayans exclusively utilize the flag's reverse side. This style is more common in national celebrations, public structures, and state-related events.
