Flag of Argentina. Coloring and writing activities for K-6.

This is the flag of Argentina:

The flag of Argentina is a triband, composed of three equally wide horizontal bands colored light blue and white.

The flag was created by Manuel Belgrano and was first raised at the city of Rosario on February 27, 1812, during the Argentinian War of Independence.

There are multiple interpretations on the reasons for those colors. One is that the blue stripes represent the sky and the white one the clouds. The sun called “sol de Mayo” (May sun) was added later in 1818 in reference to the sun breaking through the clouds when the first Argentinian government was declared on May 25th of 1810. Another meaning for the light blue is freedom.

Argentina’s flag day falls on June 20th. This is the day that Manuel Belgrano (the flag’s creator) died.
