Interesting Ecuador Flag Facts:
The flags of Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela are very similar because upon their independence in 1822 they formed a confederation called Gran Colombia. After they parted ways in 1830, they all retained the same essential flag design, whose inspiration is attributed to freedom fighter General Francisco Miranda.
The bird on the Ecuador flag’s coat of arms is an Andean Condor. This native South American bird is also on the arms of Bolivia, Chile and Colombia.
