About This Item

Peru

The flag of Peru was adopted by the government of Peru in 1825. It is a vertical triband with red outer bands and a single white middle band. Depending on its use, it may be defaced with different emblems, but usually with the coat of arms.  The coat of arms includes the vicuña (a relative of the llama and alpaca), the quina (cinchona) tree, and a cornucopia of gold.  The color red signifies the blood shed fallen while achieving Peruvian independence. Legend has it that red flamingos flying across a white cloudy sky from which the inspiration for the colors came.  The story goes that inspiration for the flag came when Jose San Martin landed in the southern coastal town of Paracas in 1820 to launch the invasion of Peru and he saw a flock of flamingos take flight. Others say that the white represents peace and the red is the blood from the fighters of their freedom.
