Ecuador’s flag, adopted in 1860, is based on a design by Venezuelan revolutionary Francisco de Miranda, who was inspired by a conversation about primary color theory. In this flag, yellow represents the sun and the gold of the ancestors, blue represents the ocean and clear skies, and red represents the blood spilled fighting for independence. The government version includes Ecuador’s coat of arms, featuring the Chimborazo Mountain, the Guayas River, and the first seaworthy steamship built in Ecuador. The sun above the boat is surrounded by the Zodiac signs for March through July, evocative of the March Revolution of 1845. The condor above the crest spreads his wings in a gesture of power.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Ecuador’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
