Description of the flag

Flag of Los Andes Army (1817-1818), used by the independentist army of Rio de la Plata and Chilean provinces, in the Andes region.
Jaume Ollé, 21 Sep 1996

Following Rosenkrantz’s theory [rkz97], the Justicialist Flag was designed with two vertical stripes flag because in the 1940s (when the Peronist Flag was created), the general idea was that San Martin’s Andes’ Army’s Flags had been that way, with an horizontal positioned coat of arms. Nowadays after more research, some scholars think that the Andes’ Army’s Flag was a two horizontal stripes flag with the coat of arms in a normal position. According to this new theory only a part of the original Andes’ Army’s flag is preserved.

By provincial decree #5930, of of 1992.10.21, Mendoza adopts as provincial, flag the «Flag of the Andes».
