The Argentine flag was adopted February 25, 1818. The blue color on this flag is called “celeste” by Argentines, because it is the color of the day sky. Flag bearers in Argentina often go through an intense screening process. Competition is fierce in Argentine schools to win the honor of carrying the flag. The civil version of this flag does not include the yellow Sun of May in the center. Made in China from economy polyester and mounted on a wooden stick. Measures 12 in. x 18 in.
