Current GOAL

Travel bugs seem to regularly disappear from urban caches and at caching events.  Please drop this item in rural or Premium Member Only caches.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts—then the chain and tag won't tangle with other items.  Otherwise, take this bug everywhere—no permission is needed to leave the US. 

About This Item

Chile

Patch of the Flag of Chile.  The national flag of Chile, consists of two unequal horizontal bands of white and red and a blue square the same height as the white band in the canton, which bears a white five-pointed star in the center.  It was adopted on October 18, 1817.  The Chilean flag is also known in Spanish as La Estrella Solitaria and in English, The Lone Star.
 
The star represents a guide to progress and honor; blue symbolizes the sky and the Pacific Ocean, white is for the snow-covered Andes, and red stands for the blood spilled to achieve independence.
 
According to the epic poem La Araucana, the colors were derived from those from the flag flown by the Mapuche during the Arauco War.  "Flag Day" is held each year on the ninth of July to commemorate the 77 soldiers who died in the 1882 Battle of La Concepción.

Exchanged a Geo Coin for your Travel Bug will let your Flag of Chile wave as I travel other parts of Texas and will let it fly free where there is a good chance that it will continue flying across the country.
