Guatemala’s Independence Decorations

Guatemala's Independence Decorations

In September Guatemalans celebrate its Independence Day on the 15th, but through out the month you can find Independence celebrations and decorations. Independence bunting is often found in doorways, windows, balconies, etc. This white building in the Main Plaza is a popular spot for placing Guatemalan flags in the balconies.

Do you know what the official blue color is supposed to be used for making Guatemalan flags? Do a search in the archives for the correct answer.

The first correct answer will win the flag shown in Libre al viento tur hermosa bandera… as a post card mailed from Antigua Guatemala. Good luck to all contestants!

    • Sorry Vincent, that’s the right answer. Read Manolo’s comment below to see the correct answer.

  • Celestial Blue?

    • Celestial blue is close but not correct yet. We’re looking for this official color code ISCC-NBS 177.

        Still waiting for the postcard, pero tengo la fe, estara aqui pronto.  I sent you something via the U.S. Postal Service, which claims that it arrived in Miami on 2 septiembre.  Let’s see if it finds its way to La Antigua ( I always do ).
