Well, who knows really. I know there’s legislation which describes to the T what a Guatemalan flag is supposed to look like, but like always in Guatemala, laws are beautiful abstract texts that live inside very dusty books. Reality dictates that the Guatemalan flag can be blue, any blue really, with or without the emblem or coat of arms.
However, I am glad the Guatemala’s/Central America’s Independence is celebrated in September because with all that different shades of blue in the million flags out there, it does compensate, a little, for all the white/gray skies in my photographs.
Could any Guatemalan come in and fill in the exact color blue that the Guatemalan flag should be? Any Guatemalan really, even gringos chapines or Canadians chapines.
