This plain flag without the emblem is flown by private citizens both on land and at sea. The government of the Dominican Republic adds the national coat of arms in the center of the cross - this is acording the presidential decree of 1913.

Quatered with a white cross, first and fourth fields blue, second and third red. The origin of colours is said to be from both the Haitian and French flag, although its symbolisms are different. The blue is said to stand for Liberty, red for the fire and blood of the independence struggle and the white cross is a symbol of sacrifice.

The emblem is similar to the flag design and shows a bible, a cross of gold, 4 Dominican flags and two spears on a pattern from the flag. there are bracches of olive and palm around the shield and above on a ribbon is the motto "Dios, Patria, Libertad" meaning "God, Fatherland, Liberty". Below the shield is another ribbon bearing the name of the country "República Dominicana".

Adoption dates of the flags and arms was 6 November 1844 for both emblems.
