The Uruguay flag design dates back to 1828 when the flag was first designed - it originally had 9 blue stripes, however this was reduced to four in 1830 due to issues with visibility in the distance- changing the flag to what it is today. The design now consists of 4 blue horizontal stripes alternating with 5 white stripes. The canton is a white square with the Sun of May with 16 rays, alternating between triangular and wavy.
The 9 stripes on the flag represent the original departments of Uruguay, and the Sun of May represents the May Revolution of 1810. The Sun of May also is said to represent Inti, the sun god of the Inca religion.
Our Uruguay flags are finished with a loop at the top and bottom of the flag to be used with clips to attach to the rope and run up a flag pole. Clips are included with the flag for your convenience.
