Honduras Flag - History, Facts & information for kids
Honduras became independent from Spain in 1821, but was under Mexican rule until 1823. On July 1, 1823, Central America proclaimed its independence and formed the United Provinces of Central America. The flag of Honduras in use today is similar to that of the United Provinces of Central America which was a federation of the 5 Central American states (present-day states of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica) from 1821 to 1841. In 1838 Honduras separated itself from the United Provinces, although it continued to use the federation flag for several years. On February 16, 1866, Honduras readopted the Central American blue-white-blue flag, but with five blue stars in the middle of the white band, symbolic of the five members of the former Central American federation (Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Guatemala)
