Illustration of a flag with a red and blue background and white cross over black text on a white background
As of 1939 this flag became the merchant and civil ensign of the Dominican Republic. The blue of the flag represents liberty while the red represents the bold spilled in the fight for independence. The white of the flag represents the sacrifice of the Dominican people. Today the Dominican Republic’s national flag also features the nation’s coat of arms and motto “Dios, Patria, Libertad” meaning “God, Country, Freedom.”
