COSTA RICA FLAGS AND BUNTING

In 1848 the present design of the flag with five stripes was adopted. The red was added to obtain the colours of revolutionary France and the national emblem was positioned in the centre. The current design of the flag and the emblem were adopted in 1964. The seven stars represent the seven provinces of Costa Rica and the volcanoes denote the geographical position of Costa Rica between the Pacific and the Atlantic. The sun is a symbol of freedom and the ships symbolize commerce
