The design of the flag, and also the color choice, has been a recurring theme for several Central American states since the first half of the 19th century.

The flag is based on the previous Central American Federation flag, with two blue bands and a white one in the center, which symbolizes the geographical position of the country, situated between the Atlantic and the Pacific.

The image in the middle of the Nicaraguan flag is the state weapon. In the triangle, which symbolizes justice, equality and truth, stands the Phrygian cap and rainbow, representing hope and freedom. Five volcanoes also feature to reflect the nation's five states. The text surrounding the triangle reads as follows: Republica de Nicaragua - America Central.
