Paraguay national flag to be changed

Postby Leonardo Piccioni » 20 Jul 2013 17:25

A decree by Paraguayan president introduced a new depiction of the seal present on the flag of Paraguay, more similar to the one used when the flag was originally adopted, in 1842. Statal institutions have a 90-days deadline to acquire new flags. [Link]

Obverse:

Reverse:

I think the previous, more colorful, depiction was better. What do you think?

At the risk of being predictable I think it matters little whatever seal is on this flag - it is a wholly indistinct and unmemorable design. If there is a plan to change the flag then they should do it properly and get a bold, bright and distinct new flag not just tinker about with little bits of script or illustrations on a circle that can't be seen from more than a few steps away.

Going a little off-topic, I think Paraguay should adopt this design, in obverse and reverse, using historically relevant Paraguayan republican symbolism:

Being a little more audacious:

A better depiction of the second variant (now my favorite), thanks to Wikimedia Commons stock:

Well, despite the CoA change (and official flag too), the athletes still compete under old one – Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony:

I agree with Vexilo - it's still the Netherlands with a seal.
