CURRENT PUERTO RICAN FLAG
The current flag design of Puerto Rico consists of five red and white stripes. Three of the stripes are red, and the other two are white. There is also a light blue triangle with a one white star in it. Each section of the flag represents something significant to the people of Puerto Rico. The three red stripes represent the blood from the brave warriors who fought for Puerto Rico's independence. The two white stripes represent the victory and peace that they would have after gaining independence. The white star represented the island of Puerto Rico. The blue represents the sky and blue coastal waters. The triangle represents the three branches of government. Some people believe that the color structure is based on the flag of Cuba but with the colors inverted.
