Bolivia Flag - Bolivian Flag
What dose Bolivia's coat of arms mean?The Coat of Arms of Bolivia has a central crest surrounded by Bolivian flag, muskets, olive branches, and has an Andean condor on top. The central crest has a border with ten stars in the bottom, and the name of Bolivia in the top section. Within the border a mountain is depicted, with a sun rising above it, and with an llama standing next to a tree and a bundle of wheat. The mountain and its contrast with the plains is indicative of the geography of Bolivia. The llama is the national animal, and the items next to it are symbolic of the resources of the nation.Around the shield there are three Bolivian flags on each side. Behind these are two pairs of crossed muskets that symbolize the struggle for independence. The olive branches are symbolic of peace, and the condor perched upon the shield is symbolic of a willingness to defend the nation and its liberty. In some depictions of these coat of arms, the two pairs of muskets are replaced by two cannons. Other depictions also have more realistic symbols in the shield.
Over the years different versions of the flag were introduced. Finally, in 1851, the order of the stripes were changed to red-yellow-green, making this the final flag change and it remains the current flag of today.
Designing a new flag has become an issue, ever since Evo Morales was elected president. The project of changing the national flag has come up during meetings of the leaders and ideologists in the presence of Evo Morales.
