At the end of the 17th century there were large estanzias of the Jesuits in the north of the country to supply their reductions in Paraguay and in Misiones. In the second half of the 18th century, estanzias emerged in the hinterland of the coast. Around 800,000 European immigrants have come to the country since 1836, in addition to Spaniards and Italians (together around 70%) also Swiss (1861), Waldensians of Piedmont, French Basques, Russians and Czechs as well as Russian-Germans (1921–1933), Jews (1930s – and 1940s) and Mennonites (1948, 1951).

The constitution guarantees freedom of religion and expressly excludes the privilege of religious communities on the part of the state. State and church have been separate since 1919. – Around 47% of the population can be assigned to the Catholic Church (Archdiocese of Montevideo with nine suffragan bishops), around 11% to Protestant denominations (especially Pentecostals, Waldensians, Adventists, Baptists, Methodists, Mennonites; around 60 denominations in total). A proportion of the population of up to 40% is classified as not religiously bound. The religious minorities include the followers of the Orthodox Churches, Anglicans, Jews, Baha’is and Muslims. European Spiritism (Kardecism) and the Afro-Brazilian religion Umbanda are widespread.

National symbols

The national flag was set by Parliament on December 16, 1830. The flag is white with four blue horizontal stripes; the resulting nine stripes symbolize the original departments. In the white Obereck there is a sighted sun.

The coat of arms was last set in 1908. It shows a split and slightly arched oval shield in the first field a golden scale (symbol of justice), in the second silver field a natural-colored hill with a fortress (Cerro von Montevideo), in the third silver field a black horse (freedom) and in the fourth blue field a golden bull (ranching). The shield is surrounded by olive and laurel branches, the sun rising above the head of the shield is a reminder of the former belonging to Argentina.

The national holiday on August 25 commemorates the gaining of independence in 1825.
