Bolivia was called Upper Peru until 1825, when it first gained independence from the Spaniards, and Simon Bolivar (1783-1830), for whom the country was given its name, became the first president of the free nation. In 1838 General Santa Cruz created the Peruvian-Bolivian Confederation. Bolivia was one of three states in the confederation and used a new flag.
In 1839, General Santa Cruz was overthrown and the confederation was disbanded. This flag was first adopted, however, on 25th July 1826 and had a yellow-red-green tri-colour. That flag was used until 1851 when the national colors in the current order were fixed as red-yellow-green in a tri-colour with horizontal bands. The red stands for the military valour of the people, yellow for the country's mineral resources, and green the country's agricultural riches.Contact us to purchase
