Uruguay has one flag for its national banner and the emblem of its merchant marine. This consists of nine stripes, five white and four blue, white at the top and bottom. In the upper corner next to the staff is a white canton on which appears a blazing sun. This is known as “El Sol de Mayo” (The Sun of May), symbolizing the awakening of the colony into independent national life.
The National Flag of Uruguay
We’ve picked this special Uruguay flag because it’s made from a heavyweight nylon and finished with strong canvas headings and large brass grommets. A bright and beautiful flag!
