May 18 – Day of the Scarlet

Día de la escarapela
18 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.
