First introduced in 1818, 1820 and 1861, the official flag of Argentina shows a light field with a horizontal white band representing the sky parting to reveal clouds. In the centre is the Sol de Mayo, meaning the sun in May. The Sol de Mayo is a recognition of Argentina's past, with this symbol being the engraving on the first Argentinian coin in 1813, during the country’s War of Independence. It is believed that the design of this flag was chosen to represent the sky and sun, with the white horizontal band used to represent the clouds.
