The Flag

The flag of COPPPAL features the organization's logo centered on a white field. The logo itself consists of four, green, isosceles triangles. The largest represents South America, with a smaller one representing Central America connecting at the upper left corner. A smaller triangle lies in the space to the right of the first two, representing the Caribbean members, while the smallest triangle is at the bottom of the logo and represents the islands off the tip of South America. Below the triangles is the organization's acronym in rounded, black, lower case letters. The flag can be seen hanging from a pole in the background on the left-hand side of a photograph online here.
