Flag of O’Higgins Region

The Flag of O’Higgins Region features a white background with a Rectangle icon in the centre with ‘Región del Libertador General Bernardo O’Higgins’ under the Rectangle.

The red colour of the flag represents the blood spilt by the martyrs of the Chilean War of Independence, while the green colour represents the region’s forests and agriculture. The white star represents the guiding light of liberty.

The diagonal division of the flag is said to symbolize the meeting of the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, which are both important geographical features of the region.

The flag was adopted on May 10, 1990, by Regional Law No. 1. It is based on the flag of the Bernardo O’Higgins Legion, a Chilean military unit that fought in the War of Independence.
