About This Item


Patch of Flag of Ecuador.  The flag of Ecuador, which consists of horizontal bands of yellow (double width), blue and red, was first adopted on September 26, 1860. The design of the current flag was finalized in 1900 with the addition of the coat of arms in the center of the flag.  The design of the flag is very similar to that of Colombia and Venezuela, which are also former constituent territories of Gran Colombia.  All three are based on a proposal by Venezuelan General Francisco de Miranda, which was adopted by Venezuela in 1811 and later Gran Colombia with some modifications.  
In the background of the oval shield on the coat of arms  is the mountain Chimborazo, while the river originating from its base represents the Guayas. Chimborazo is also the highest mountain in Ecuador and is part of the Andes Range. The steamboat on the river is named Guayas as well.  The ship was built in Guayaquil and was the first seaworthy steamship built in both Ecuador and in all of South America.  It was first put into service on October 9, 1841. The ship has the features of a Caduceus representing trade and economy.  This kind of mast has two wings surrounding a pole with two snakes encircling it.  On top a golden sun surrounded by the Zodiac astrological signs for Aries, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer representing the months March to July to symbolize the duration of the March Revolution of 1845 led by General Juan José Flores.
The condor on top of the shield stretches his wings to symbolize power, greatness and strength of Ecuador. The condor also represents the idea that it will always be ready to attack any enemy. The shield is flanked by four national flags. The laurel on the left represents the victories of the republic.  The palm leaf on the right side is a symbol of the martyrs of the fight for independence and liberty. The Fasces below the shield represents the republican dignity.
