What does the Dominican Republic flag represent?
The flag of the Dominican Republic is composed of a central white cross with red and blue rectangles in the corners (red in the upper right and lower left; blue in upper left and lower right). The national coat of arms is in the center of the white cross. The coat of arms pictures a red, white and blue flag-draped shield with a Bible and cross; the shield is surrounded by an olive branch (on the left) and a palm branch (on the right). A blue ribbon above the shield reads, "Dios, Patria, Libertad" (meaning "God, Fatherland, Liberty"). A red ribbon under the shield reads, "Republica Dominicana" (meaning "Dominican Republic"). The ratio of its height to its width is about 2:3.

hi Republic obtained independence from Haiti.

Answer . The dominican republic flag consists of a centered white cross that extends to the edges and divides the flag into four rectangles - the top ones are blue (hoist …side) and red, and the bottom ones are red (hoist side) and blue \n. \nThe white = peace and honesty, the red = hardiness, bravery, strength & valour and the blue = vigilance, truth and loyalty, perseverance & justice. \n. \nThe flag was designed by the leader of the Trinitarians who altered the layout of the blue and red of the Haitian flag and placed a large white cross over it to symbolize faith
The flag has a large white cross that divides it into four quarters. Two quarters are red and two are blue. Red represents the blood shed by the liberators. Blue expresses… God's protection over the nation. The white cross symbolizes the struggle of the liberators to bequeath future generations a free nation. An alternate interpretation is that blue represents the ideals of progress and liberty, whereas white symbolizes peace and union amongst Dominicans.

The flag of the Dominican Republic, as described by Article 31 of the Dominican Constitution, features a centered white cross that extends to the edges and divides the flag in…to four rectangles-the top ones are blue (hoist side) and red, and the bottom ones are red (hoist side) and blue. A large coat of arms featuring a shield with the flag design and supported by a bay laurel branch (left) and a palm frond (right) 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 RepÃºblica Dominicana appear on a red ribbon (this red ribbon is depicted in more recent versions as having its tips pointing upward). In the center of the shield, flanked by three spears (two of them holding Dominican banners) on each side, is a Bible with a small cross above it and said to be opened to the Gospel of John, chapter 8, verse 32, which reads Y la verdad nos harÃ¡ libre (And the truth shall make you free). The blue on the flag stands for liberty, the white for salvation, the red for the blood of heroes. The civil ensign follows the same design, but without the charge in the center.
The official flag of the Dominican Republic was first adopted in 1844 for state or civil use. The motto of the flag is a password that was used by Trinitarians.
