Have you ever seen Argentina’s flag? It is a beautiful flag with three bands. The outer two bands are light blue and the inside band is white. Inside the white stripe is a sun with a face on it. This sun is known as “the Sun of May”. The Sun of May can also be found on Uruguay’s flag and was on the Peru’s flag during a portion of the 1800’s.
So what is the “Sun of May” all about?
The Sun of May is named after Argentina’s May revolution in 1810, which led to Argentina’s independence from Spain. The flag is best displayed in the city of Rosario, where the flag was first raised in 1812. The national flag memorial is also located in Rosario.
Argentina can be recognized by the SUN of May on the Argentine flag. May they one day be recognized for their love and devotion to the SON of God!
