Seeing Both Sides of Paraguay’s Flag


#Paraguay #flags #funfacts

Paraguay’s flag is different from the flags of other nations in a very special way: its two sides are different from each other.

The flag design dates back to 1842. The red, white, and blue stripes are the same on both sides. On the obverse side, is the national coat of arms. The reverse side features the seal of the treasury.
