Neuquen has three equal vertical stripes blue, white, blue. In the center, a badge made from elements of the provincial emblem (the same person designed both flag and emblem). On the flag it consists of a blue disc charged with the volcano Lanin, and a pehuen (monkey puzzle tree, Araucaria araucana) infront of it. Around the disc, laurel branches on the joining of which a poincieta, or federal star (estrella federal), a local flower.

Ornato flag is a flag for decorative purposes.

This image is not correct. The Neuquen’s flag is certainly blue - white - blue vertical, but the central emblem is not the arms of the province, depicted in this image, but a stylized version in green and gold, including 16 golden stars in semi-circle. Also proportions should be c. 4:5 instead of the used 2:3.
