La Raza - "Flag of the Race"

[La Raza - Hispanic American] image by Guillermo Aveledo, 7 September 1999

The Flag of the Race ("Bandera de la Raza Hispanica"). I have drawn it following the images on the book "Banderas y Escudos del Mundo" (Landauro, Antonio, Editor (19??). Easa, México).

This flag, as I have found, was designed by the Uruguayan Angel Camblor, and was hoisted on October 12th, 1932, Columbus Day.

This flag, "a symbol which represents the common past and indivisible future of the Hispanic American peoples", is formed by a white field (symbolizing purity), with three horizontally-aligned purplish-brown-red crosses of Christ which represent the three caravels of Columbus as well as Christendom (the hue on the book is quite bad; I have used burgundy or dark-red; the color is somewhat important [though not verbally described] for it represents the Castillian standard hoisted by Columbus as he stepped over the New World). An Incan yellow sun is placed behind the center cross (which is slightly bigger), henceforth representing the light which brightly shines upon the continent.

Guillermo Aveledo, 7 September 1999

Every time I have seen the "La Raza" flag, the three crosses representing Columbus' ships have been colored violet or purple, not burgundy (usually I have seen violet). The colors violet and purple are associated with the robes worn by some Catholic prelates. The coloring in the book mentioned by Guillermo Aveledo must have been really defective. Of course, the Incas (and Aztecs) worshipped the Sun. The flag is also called "The Flag of the Americas" and is sometimes used to represent the geographical region of all of North and South America, not just as an ethnic flag for "La Raza" (the Hispanic race).
