The flag of La Paz de Los Ricos (Novodoman: Eha-vandria deva Eha-Paos dev Ehos-Riquos), also known as the Ricano flag (Novodoman: vandria Ricana) is the current national flag, one of several civil flags, and the primary ensign of La Paz de Los Ricos. The flag includes four colors in a gradient, with the gold and red on both extremes of the flag being taken from the previous national flag, the "Bandericano". In the canton of the flag is the charge, the national emblem of La Paz de Los Ricos, though this varies depending on which variant of the flag is flown.
The colors of the flag are listed below, in order from left to right:
The placement of the colors is also highly symbolic. The combination of the colors is meant to resemble a flame, representing the burning spirit of the Ricano state and people, and the resolve of the nation.
The red represents the insurmountable odds early revolutionaries faced in their wars of independence against the Portuguese and Spanish, and its position on the flag closest to the flagpole is meant to represent how firmly grounded this period is for La Paz de Los Ricos. Regulation states all future national flags must include the red bar in this position. The crimson and orange bars represent the transition period of Los Ricos, when Los Ricos was establishing its identity. An alternate interpretation is that the two bars represent the two Ricano civil wars, the crimson bar for the Unitary War, and the orange bar for the War of Luster. The golden field on the fly side of the flag is most often interpreted as the "golden era" of the nation, representing the prosperous present and hopeful future of the state.
