Maarten answered your question, but other takes are possible. One is to lose the legend and make sure that country names are next to the bars they represent.

Thanks Nick, it worked perfectly, now every country's bar has the same
color for each one of the graphs. One additional question: I would
like to suppress the legend, as it is the same for every graph. But at
the same time I would like to have it somewhere (maybe on an empty
graph with only the legend of the previous graphs) as a reference.

If I leave it as it is now, every graph has the legend, and besides it
is redundant, it is a big legend that distorts the graph proportions.
But if I set - legend(off) - I don't know what does each color mean.
