The flag of Guatemala consists of three equal vertical bands of light blue (hoist side), white, and light blue, with the national emblem of Guatemala centered in the white band. The blue stands for the two oceans that touch Guatemala's shores and the white symbolizes peace and purity. The national emblem of Guatemala comprises of a wreath of bay laurel branches (symbolizes victory), the Resplendent Quetzal (the national bird of Guatemala which symbolizes liberty), a scroll with 'LIBERTAD 15 DE SEPTIEMBRE DE 1821' written on it (Central America's independence from Spain), and two crossed Remington rifles (symbolizes its willingness to defend itself) and two crossed swords (symbolizes honor). When used for civil purposes, the flag should not contain the national emblem of Guatemala.
