The banner an the airms o Nicaragua in uise the day are the maist seemilar tae those uised bi the Unitit Provinces o Central Americae. The triangle, volcanoes, risin sun, Cap o Liberty, an rainbow aw appeared on the oreeginal emblem. The coat o airms uised the day contains the name o the state, Republica de Nicaragua, whauras in 1823 the title wis Provincias Unidas del Centro de Americae. The decision tae revert tae the emblems uised bi the Unitit Provinces o Central Americae wis taken in 1908 an reflectit Nicaragua's aspirations for the rebirth o the poleetical entity formed bi the 5 naitions. Except for the text aroond the airms, the banner is vera seemilar tae that o the Unitit Provinces o Central Americae. The 5 volcanoes represent the oreeginal 5 member states, the Cap o Liberty represents naitional freedom, an the rays o the sun an the rainbow are seembolic o the bricht future.
