ⓘ Banner o Ecuador

The banner o Ecuador, which consists o horizontal baunds o yellae, blue an reid, wis first adoptit on September 26, 1860. The design o the current banner wis finalized in 1900 wi the addition o the coat o airms in the centre o the banner. Afore uisin the yellae, blue an reid tricolor, Ecuador uised white an blue banners that contained stars for each province o the kintra. The design o the banner is vera seemilar tae that o Colombie an Venezuela, which are an aa umwhile constituent territories o Gran Colombie. Aw three are based on a proposal bi Venezuelan General Francisco de Miranda, which wis adoptit bi Venezuela in 1811 an later Gran Colombie wi some modifications. Thare is a variant o the banner that daes no contain the coat o airms that is uised bi the merchant marine. This banner matches Colombies in ivery aspect, but Colombie uises a different design when her merchant marine ships are at sail.

Chimborazo is an aa the heichest muntain in Ecuador an is pairt o the Andes Range. The steamboat on the river is named Guayas as well. The ship wis biggit in Guayaquil an wis the first seaworthy steamship biggit in baith Ecuador an in aw o Sooth Americae. It wis first put intae service on October 9, 1841. The ship haes the features o a Caduceus representin tred an economy. This kynd o mast haes twa wings surroondin a pole wi twa snakes encirclin it. On tap a golden sun surroondit bi the Zodiac astrological signs for Aries, Taurus, Gemini an Cancer representin the months Mairch tae Julie tae seembolise the duration o the Mairch Revolution o 1845 led bi General Juan José Flores.

1.2. Design Seembolism

Miranda ascribed the colours he chose for his banner tae Johann Wolfgang von Goethes theory o primary colours. In a letter written tae Count Semyon Romanovich Vorontsov in 1792, Miranda describit a late-nicht conversation which he haed wi Goethe at a pairty in Weimar, Germany during the winter o 1785. Fascinatit wi Mirandas accoont o his exploits in the American Revolutionary War an his travels throughoot the Americas an Europe, Goethe tauld him that, "Your destiny is tae create in your land a place whaur primary colours are no distortit.” He proceedit tae clarify wha he meant:

The first time the yellae, blue an reid banner wis flewn bi Miranda wis in 1806 on the ship Leander when tryin tae face the Spainyie forces aff o the coast o Haiti. The colors o the modren Ecuadorian banner evolved frae those o the banner o the naition o Gran Colombie, which encompassed the territories o modren-day Ecuador, Colombie an Venezuela. The colors hae the follaein meanins:

  • Blue: The ocean an the clear skies

  • Red: The bluid spilled bi the heroes who deed in the name o thair kintramens Faitherland an Freedom.
