El Salvador Skinny
Statesman Tie’s El Salvador tie was designed to show off the national coat of arms of El Salvador as well as highlight the blue and white stripes of the flag against a black background.
Speaking of the “blue” from the flag, “Blue is an important color in Salvadoran culture and identity. It started with Native American cultures of Mesoamerica in El Salvador, that cultivated and produced (añil) indigo plant which they used extracts to produce blue dyes. When the Europeans invaded and colonized the area, they saw the wealth of indigo and turned El Salvador to one of the world’s foremost providers of indigo dye in its time. Synonymous to the country’s wealth, the colonizers referred to the dye as “the blue gold”, that dominated El Salvador’s economy until it was completely replaced by coffee cultivation. Today El Salvador remains as one of the few countries in the world that still cultivates indigo to produce blue dyes. Over time El Salvador’s flag has had several different shades of blue, from the lightest to darkest. The present current modern flag displays a Cobalt Blue tone.” (Source)
