May 18 – Day of the Scarlet

Día de la escarapela
| 17 May, 2019 |

Created in 1812 by order of Belgrano. The origin of the cockade is of vital importance in Argentine history since it was the first national symbol and marked the way; after its approval, Belgrano designed a flag with the same colors; the one that he first hoisted on the banks of the Paraná River on February 27, 1812.
