Flags of the Nations: Bolivia


The national flag of Bolivia is a red, yellow, and green horizontal tricolor with the Bolivian coat of arms in the center. Red represents the blood shed by heroes for the birth and preservation of the Republic; yellow represents wealth and resources, and green represents the richness of natural areas as well as hope.

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Bolivia

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Bolivia in 1945.

Bolivia had a population of 10,631,486 in 2016. That same year, Bolivia reported 238 Churches of the Nazarene, 220 of which had been officially organized. Bolivia has 12,013 total members.

Located on the South America Region, Bolivia has two Phase 3 districts, one Phase 2 district, and three Phase 1 districts. For more information about the South America Region, visit samnaz.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
