The traditional clothing worn in Guatemala is based on the native clothing worn by their Mayan ancestors called traje. The garments vary in style, color and embellishment based on location and language group, but bold shades of red, blue, yellow and pink are found in all Guatemalan clothing.

The tipical every day clothing for women or small girls is a colorful skirt or dress with a top this does not mean that they don't wear shorts or pants this is just what most wear. The small boys wear anything they can get their hands on as seen in the picture.

This a picture of what the men might wear. Pants or Capri like shorts with a shirt and every quatemalan man has to have his hat.

Instead of winter and summer, Guatemala has a dry and rainy season. The rainy season extends from May to October, but has some short dry periods in July and August. The rainy season doesn't mean days of continuous rain the sun still shines for part of the day, often raining in the afternoon. Guatemala, however, rarely experiences heavy tropical storms. The dry period stretches from March to the early part of May when the country may go weeks without rain.

The symbol in the center of the flag is the Guatemalan coat of arms. It includes the resplendent quetzal, the national bird of Guatemala that symbolizes liberty. A parchment scroll bearing the date of Central America's independence from Spain. The crossed rifles mean the willingness to defend itself if needed, a bay laurel crown, the symbol for victory, and the crossed swords represent honor.

Almost all dishes include some form of black beans, white rice and corn tortillas. Breakfast often combines the aforementioned elements with scrambled eggs and fried plantains. Fresh fruit is another common substitute.
