Peru Flag

The flag has three equal, vertical bands of red (hoist side), white, and red with the coat of arms centered in the white band; the coat of arms features a shield bearing a vicuna, cinchona tree (the source of quinine), and a yellow cornucopia spilling out gold coins, all framed by a green wreath.

The red stripes represent the blood that was spilled to achieve Peruvian freedom. The white stands for peace.
