The star represents a guide to progress and honour; blue symbolizes the sky and the Pacific Ocean, white is for the snow-covered Andes, and red stands for the blood spilled to achieve independence.
The Chilean flag is also known in Spanish as La Estrella Solitaria (English: The Lone Star).
According to the epic poem La Araucana, the colours were derived from those from the flag flown by the Mapuche during the Arauco War. “Flag Day” is held each year on the ninth of July to commemorate the 77 soldiers who died in the 1882 Battle of La Concepción. Wikipedia
