Uruguay National Flag

Designed by Joaquín Suárez the first head of state of Uruguay in December 1828 and President of Uruguay 1843-1852.

The national flag of Uruguay has a field of nine equal horizontal stripes alternating white and blue. The canton is white, charged with the Sun of May, from which 16 rays extend, alternating between triangular and wavy. The flag was first adopted by law on 16 December 1828, and had 19 stripes until 11 July 1830, when a new law reduced the number of stripes to nine.
