Puerto Rico Flag
We carry authentic Puerto Rico Flags in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Our flags are proudly made in the United States from durable nylon and are printed with vibrant long-lasting inks. The Puerto Rico national flag is often displayed at embassies, outside of businesses associated with Puerto Rico, and at the homes of people who take great pride in their Puerto Rican heritage.
Our indoor flags are finished with a pole hem and your choice of with or without golden fringe. Gold fringe is the traditional way to display an indoor flag, however, some people choose without fringe for a simple and clean look that is also less expensive. If you are looking for a complete indoor presentation set, our Build Your Own Indoor International Flag Set program allows you to select a durable nylon indoor Puerto Rico Flag and choose between premium quality poles, bases, and ornaments, and tassel. For indoor applications, most buyers choose a 3ft. x 5ft. flag with an 8ft. pole, however, if you have a low ceiling, you may opt for a 7ft. pole, which is designed to work with drop ceilings. If you are looking for a very substantial international flag display, our 4ft. x 6ft. indoor flags can be paired with a 9ft. pole for our largest indoor display option.
Our outdoor international flags are finished with a canvas header and brass grommets and are offered in four sizes: 2ft. x 3ft., 3ft. x 5ft., 4ft. x 6ft., and 5ft. x 8ft., to fit any sized flagpole. Typically, outdoor flags are flown outside of government organizations, businesses, and institutions on in-ground and wall-mount flagpoles, however, some people also buy these flags to display their international pride at home. If you are looking for a wall-mount Puerto Rico flag set to display outside of your home, our Build Your Own Outdoor International Flag Set program will allow you to choose between premium quality 6ft. poles and brackets to display the Puerto Rico Flag on your front porch. Outdoor flags can also be displayed indoors on interior walls of your home with screws anchored in the wall to attach to the grommets.
In addition to the flags we offer for purchase, we maintain an archive of the audio and lyrics of the Puerto Rico National Anthem, historical information about the Puerto Rico flag, demographic data about Puerto Rico, and free high resolution images of the Puerto Rico flag for use in projects and on websites.
Regardless of your application, we are looking forward to working with you to provide the required flags, flagpoles, and hardware for your application. If you need assistance, please reach out to us by phone, email, or chat, and we will be happy to help.
History of the Puerto Rico Flag
The Puerto Rico Flag features five horizontal bands in alternating red and white colors and at the left of the flag, is a blue triangle, pointing towards the center of the flag. The blue triangle contains a white 5-pointed star. The red color represents blood and the "blood that nourishes the three branches of its government – Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary" The white color represents the country's freedom and liberty and the blue color represents the sky and water of the country. The blue triangle represents the "Republican Government" and the white star represents "The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico."
The Puerto Rico Flag that is used today is an adaptation of the flag that was designed in 1895 and first flown in 1897 during the "Yauco Revolt," which was Puerto Rico’s second revolt against Spain. The first Puerto Rico Flag was created in 1868 and featured four rectangles (still with the red, white and blue colors) and was flown at "Grito De Lares," which was Puerto Rico's first revolt against Spain.
Between 1492-1898, Puerto Rico were not permitted to fly their own flag and had to fly the flag of Spain and between 1898-1952, they had to fly the flag of the USA. The Puerto Rico flag used today was officially adopted in 1952.
Puerto Rico (which is also referred to as Land of the valiant Lord) is an island nation in the Caribbean Sea and it is a territory of the USA. The largest city and capital is called San Juan, which is also the second oldest city in America.
Puerto Rico was first discovered in 1493 by Christopher Columbus, who claimed it for the Spanish. He also named the island "San Juan Bautista" after John the Baptist. Spain had control over Puerto Rico for over 400 years and endured many invasions by the French, Dutch, and British. In 1898, as a result of the Spanish-American war, America gained control over Puerto Rico which still exists today.
Puerto Rico's economy is mainly reliant on manufacturing, technology, and tourism. It is home to some of the best beaches in the world and the capital, San Juan, attracts over five million tourists a year. One of the main attractions is the "Salta De Dona Juana" which is a 100ft waterfall with crystal clear waters. Another main attraction is the San Juan historic site which is home to forts, bastions, powder houses, and the old city wall. The old city of San Juan is a 465 year old neighborhood where the streets are paved with blue cobbles and is very popular, not only for its history, but also for its beaches, casinos, and climate. "La Fortaleza" which dates back to 1533, is the residence of the Governor of Puerto Rico and is the oldest executive mansion in the new world.
Puerto Rico National Anthem
The Borinquen Song (La Borinquena)
The land of Borinquen
where I have been born
is a flowery garden
of magical beauty.
A constantly clear sky
serves as its canopy
and placid lullabies are sung
by the waves at its feet.
When at her beaches Columbus arrived
full of awe he exclaimed,
"Oh!, oh!, oh!, this is the lovely land
that I seek"
Borinquen is the daughter,
the daughter of the sea and the sun.
Of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun.
