The flag of Aruba was officially adopted in 1976, when it gained independence from the Netherlands. The blue background represents the sea, yellow for abundance of its natural wealth, red for the love Arubans feel for their country and white surrounding the red star symbolize the snow-white beaches as well as the purity of its citizens who always strive for justice and liberty.
Aruba flags are 100% SolarMax Nylon (sometimes called Ny-glo by the manufacturer), the longest lasting nylon flag material available. You can fly them outdoors for extended periods because they withstand the damaging effects of sun and wind. Made in America by Annin Flagmakers, the nation's oldest and largest flag manufacturer. Annin has produced flags since 1847.
