Description of the flag

The flag is white with burgundian red cross in the militar spanish style, based on the banner of the Charcas Audiency. Today the white is peace, purity and faith; and the red is the blood. [m2nXX]

There are few different detailed patterns of the saltire.

In front of the presidental palace of La Paz, the soldiers of the presidental guard hang up a simplified version: A simple red cross on white back ground. Seems to be an accepted simple version of the official flag of Chuquisaca.

When I was in La Paz in 2001, I saw the flags of the departments hoisted at Plaza Murillo, in front of the Presidental Palace. The flag of Chuquisaca was simplified to a red cross on a white field (like the St.Patrick cross flag).
