LimaEasy's Editors Corner

We really don't like the word "Blog" but we have to admit that the Editors Corner is the LimaEasy Blog. Things change, new content gets published, an article doesn't seem to fit into any of our categories or we as the editors of LimaEasy would like to air our opinions (and you are welcome to comment on them) - This is the place you'll find all that...

1st Peruvian National Flag and Manuscript of the National Anthem on display

To celebrate its 125th anniversary and Peru's National Day, the Peruvian Banco de Credito, BCP, opens its doors to the public exhibiting 60 pre-Hispanic and Republican pieces incl. textiles, ceramics, religious paintings and sculptures. But the highlight of the exhibition are two historical invaluable pieces that are displayed for the first time: the 1st Peruvian National Flag which was produced by two ladies in Peru's northern Piura and used by José de San Martin during the declaration of Peru's independence in 1821 and an original letter from 1863 written by José Bernardo Alcedo which contains details about the composition of Peru's National Anthem.

The place, where these pieces are exhibited, is a piece of the exhibition itself: the beautiful San Pedro building, part of the BCP's main office in the center of Lima was constructed in 1929 by the architect Ricardo Malachowski.
