Comodoro Rivadavia is a city of c. 73 000 inhabitants located in Patagonia, in the South of province of Chubut, where oil is extracted. The black device on the right of the flag is an oil extractor (there might be a more specific technical term to designate this device). The three other black device on the left of the flag look like electric windmills. It would make sense since Patagonia is known for its violent winds. Bernardino Rivadavia (1780-1845) was the first President of the Republic of Argentina (1826-1827). In 1880, his birthdate was declared National Day.
