Description of the flag

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.

Incorrect flag depiction, showing the full emblem

Incorrect Neuquen flag
by Pascal Gross, 09 Dec 1998

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.
Mario Fabretto and Jaume Ollé, 10 Dec 1998


Incorrect version at the official website

At the official website there is a flash presentation including the flag.
Dov Gutterman, 13 Dec 2001

The image at the provincial website, coming from the province government, should be best, though it is not. Neither technically, but is also shows design differences comparing with Jaume’s image above — the width of the blue stripes, it’s shade respective to the national flag and to the sky on the emblem, and design details of the emblem itself. Official websites presenting incorrect versions of their symbols is hardely seldom, but noteworthy even so.
