Flags hanging on Defence Minisrty building for Dia del Mar / Day of the Sea, La Paz, Bolivia
The blue flag in the centre is the Maritime Vindication flag / Bandera de la Reivindicación Marítima. It has the national colours and the wiphala, bordered by 9 stars which represent the 9 Departments of Bolivia. The lone star against the blue (which represents the sea) symbolises the Litoral, the Pacific coastal department which was lost to the Chileans during the War of the Pacific. On the left is the Bolivian national flag or Tricolor, on the right the wiphala flag.
