Argentina Flag Meaning - There are two theories as to Argentina's flag origin. One theory is that the colors represent the Bourbon Dynasty of Spain, as Spain colonized Argentina in 1516. The second theory states the blue represents the Rio de la Plata (River of Silver) and the white symbolizes the metal silver, as the word Argentina originates from the Latin word 'Argentum' which means silver. Early conquerors thought there were large quantities of silver hidden in Argentina's rivers.
