Video: Oops! Peru TV Mistakes Puerto Rican flag for Chile’s in Soccer Promo
Lots of people mix Chile’s flag with the Texas State flag, but this time a television network in Peru mixed it up with Puerto Rico’s flag during a promo for the upcoming Copa América soccer tournament. The promo features players Mauricio Isla and Jean Beausejour with “Chile” on the screen, but the Puerto Rican flag. Can you guess which of the flags below is Chile’s?
The Texas and Chile flags, are pretty similar. Both have a white stripe on top and red on the bottom, plus a single star in the middle of a blue field. However, on Chile’s flag, the blue is only in the top left corner, but on Texas’s, the blue is displayed all along the left side. The blue section on the Puerto Rico flag creates a triangle which is pretty distinct, but not enough for the América channel in Peru.
According to a Chilean newspaper, the promo only made it onto YouTube and was corrected before hitting the airwaves.
