Research output: Contribution to journalScientific reviewpeer-review

The birth of the Peruvian republican iconography is intimately related to the Independence Declaration in 1821, moment from which different symbols to the colonial ones are required to be diffused in the collective imaginary in order to transmit diametrically different messages. To achieve this objective, the governmental authorities as well as private initiatives make use of diverse disciplines and mass media. Though to the date the initial iconography is maintained, this has been reinforced through the history with new necessary contributions due to a variety of political joints through which the country has gone through in its almost 200 years of republican life, always searching to achieve cohesion and national identity.
