The Liberia Rican flag and
..revolutionary peaceful symbol !
The Costa Rican flag is the symbol that we have in our country
to let the world know that we got independent of the Spain Empire.
This happened because at some point in history Costa Rica and most
America countries belong to one government called “Federal Republic of

Another fun fact about this episode in history is that this
lady was not a regular costa rican woman as my mother or my sister, of

use it…’ he

The Costa Rican flag colors explained
The colors of the flag are blue, white and red and I remember that
since I was in school it have been always a discussion of what they
really mean. The Blue stands for the sky that covers the country, the
idea is that it protects us; other people say that it also represents
eternity or the desire to have high goals.
The white color basically represents peace. If you come to Costa Rica
you will notice that we are kind of laid back, friendly people that try
to avoid conflict. I think the white should mean ‘relax’ instead.
The last is the red one; most people say that it means the blood of
people who served the country in the army fighting for freedom; but
popularly means the blood of hard working people, like me :)

The flag is easy to see in the next places..
Every single school, high school or university, hospitals, banks and
governmental institutions. Easy to see in
festivals in April and almost daily in September for the Independence
Day celebrations, and if you live in Costa Rica you will use to go to
the streets to complain against the government about
taxes, low salaries or ‘nonsense laws’ they approved for us.
A more national usage I like better is when the National Soccer team
against a good team and win…You will see the flag everywhere and most
costarican will wear a red t-shirt the next day…but if we lose we will
about how bad our team performed, for sure the entire day.
