The flag of Peru consists of three equal sized vertical stripes - the left and right stripes are red and the middle one is white. Peru also has a state flag which incorporates the shield from the national coat of arms in the middle of the flag

Peruvian Flag History:

The Peruvian flag was adopted on February 25, 1825, making it one of the world's oldest flags. Peru gained independence from Spain on July 28, 1821 and a red and white flag diagonally divided into four sections was adopted. The Peruvian flag was modified to a red-white-red horizontal design in 1822 and it was adopted in 1825.

Interesting Peruvian Flag Facts:

The flag of Peru was designed by José de San Martín, who hailed from Argentina. San Martin was a general and the prime leader of southern South America's successful fight for independence from Spain. Together with Simón Bolívar from the north, San Martín is regarded as one of the liberators of Spanish South America. He is a national hero of Argentina.
