Product Description

The emblem, slightly modified in 1946, has its center a shield divided into five sections. The central one, running the width of the escutcheon, portrays the Isthmus in red with the blue Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea joined by the canal. The orange sun setting with golden rays behind the mountains and the yellow moon rising from the sea signify that Panama's independence came about when "afternoon and evening met." The gold sword and brown musket crossed on a blue field in an upper segment are grim reminders of strife which troubled the country for several hundred years after its discovery in 1501. The red, white, and blue national flag was designed by the son and sewn by the wife of Panama's first president, Manuel E. Amador. Divided into four equal rectangles, the lower hoist section is blue and the upper fly portion red; the remaining sections, white in color, display stars, one red and the other blue. The two star colors represent the political parties at the time of independence, one liberal, the second conservative. The position of the stars on the white fields indicates that the parties were united for the nation's benefit.?ΓΏ Symbols Of The Nations, 214
