The El Salvador flag consists of three horizontal bars. The middle bar is white and stands for peace. The two blue bars represent the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, which border the country. There are two versions of the banner. One bears the coat of arms in the middle, whereas the other has the words DIOS UNION LIBERTAD (which means God, Union, and Liberty).

A design that was modeled after the USA’s Old Glory flag was starting in 1865, but was later abandoned. The El Salvador flag is widely used at sporting events. The country is industrializing quickly, and has one of the largest economies in the region.

The nation’s largest and capital city is San Salvador. The El Salvador flag belongs to a nation whose national motto is “God, Union, Liberty”. The currency used is the US dollar.
