If you want to know more about the Dominican Republic flag, here are some illustrations and the key details of the Flag of the Dominican Republic design:
Fig.1. The Flag of the Dominican Republic
This striking flag bears a centred white cross that extends to the edges and divides the flag into four rectangles. The bars of the cross are a thickness of 1/5th of the depth and 1/8th of the breadth of the flag.
The top rectangles are blue (hoist side) and red, and the bottom ones are red (hoist side) and blue.
A small coat of arms featuring a shield supported by an olive branch (left) and a palm branch (right) is at the centre of the white cross; above the shield a blue ribbon displays the motto in Spanish:
"DIOS, PATRIA, LIBERTAD" (which means "God, Fatherland, Liberty")
Below the shield the words REPUBLICA DOMINICANA (we guess you can work out what that means!) appears on a red ribbon (see Fig.2.).
