About the Paraguayan national imagery:
The seals of the Paraguayan coat of arms were added to the flag in November of 1842. On the front, the seal of Paraguay: a palm frond and olive branch intertwined at the bottom and open at the top, with a star in the middle, and the inscription “República del Paraguay” (Republic of Paraguay) above. On the reverse side of the flag, the seal of the Department of the Treasury was added: a lion within a circle, with the words “Paz y Justicia” (Peace and Justice) above. Paraguay's flag is unique in that the front and back have different designs.
