Brief History of the Navy Jack
The history of the Chilean Navy’s ensign dates back to the early 19th century, mirroring the nation’s struggle for independence. The design was officially adopted on October 18, 1818, just eight months after Chile gained its independence from Spanish rule.
Throughout its existence, the flag has undergone subtle modifications, yet it has remained a steadfast symbol of the Chilean Navy’s dedication to protecting the nation’s maritime interests.
