The Flag of Artigas pays homage to José Gervasio Artigas, national hero of Uruguay. It has three horizontal stripes, the top and bottom being blue, and the central one white. On top of them, it has a diagonal red stripe.
There is also a different version of the roundel, known as the Artigas' Cockade, which is worn as a cockade on the uniforms of the Military of Uruguay, and also serves as the emblem of the Uruguayan Army. It is likewise based on the Flag of Artigas, but with blue at the centre, surrounded by white then blue, and with the red diagonal stripe overall.
