Argentina is officially a Spanish-speaking country, but English, Italian, German and French are also spoken there. It’s population is over 42 million people, with almost million living in its largest city and capital, Buenos Aires. It has had a female president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, since 2007, who took over the presidency from her husband. Like famed 1940s-50s first lady, Evita, or Eva Peron, today’s President Fernandez is popular for her efforts to help the impoverished citizens of Argentina.
Argentina is also a world leader in gay and transgender rights. It was the first Latin-American nation to legalize gay marriage back in 2010, and passed a law in 2012 allowing transgender people to change their gender on official documents without a psychiatric diagnosis or surgery, requirements other countries like Spain and Britain have in place. Free hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery are offered to all transgender people who want them in Argentina, even those under age 18 years.

You may also be surprised, or not, to know that Argentina’s population is mostly white Spanish and Italians (97%) and Roman Catholic (92%).
Here is a picture of the Argentinian flag, courtesy of factmonster.com. Although some say the colors represent the sky, clouds and sun, the history points to a loyalty to the House of Bourbon, one of Spain’s royal families. The sun was added in 1818, called the Sun of May, and is actually a replica of the first Argentine coin from 1813. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Argentina)
