National Symbols

In the early days of the Republic of Chile, it became necessary to create official symbols for the new state of Chile. The national symbols would not only promote the international recognition of Chile as a country, but also would have to be commonly identified by the Chilean people.

The current national symbols, such as the Chilean flag, the national hymn and the coat of arms, were only officially approved after undergoing various changes; what they represented underwent some changes as well.

Here, you can get to know the origins of these emblems and how they have changed over the years.
