The Argentine flag consists of three horizontal stripes, the top and bottom ones being sky blue and the middle stripe being white. In the centre of the middle stripe shines a yellow sun.

This unique design was created by Manuel Belgrano in 1812, and the new flag was soon put to use in the war for independence, even before independence was officially declared on 9 July, 1816. The date for the celebration of Flag Day, 20 June, is based on its being the day of Belgrano’s death. That date was not designated until 1938.

Flag Day is about much more than just the history of Argentina’s national banner. It is a day of patriotism, national unity, and Argentine culture.
