The Dominican Republic Flag

The flag of the Dominican Republic features a centered white cross that extends to the edges and divides the flag into four rectangles, the top ones are blue and red, and the bottom ones are red and blue.

A small coat of arms featuring a shield supported by a bay laurel branch and a palm frond is at the center of the cross; above the shield, a blue ribbon displays the national motto: Dios, Patria, Libertad (God, Fatherland, Liberty). Below the shield, the words "Rep├║blica Dominicana" appear on a red ribbon.
