The Chilean flag was adopted on October 18th, 1817.

The red featured in the flag represents the blood spilled to gain independence, the blue is a symbol for the sky and the Pacific Ocean, and the star represents future and unity.

In the early 19th century, the flag was created during the Chilean War of Independence. The first period of independence, between 1810 and 1814, used a tricolor of blue, white and red. Chile once again became a Spanish colony in 1814, but managed to break free and regain independence in 1817.

The old Chilean flag, originating from the first period of independence, was abolished because of its resemblance to the flag of the Netherlands.
