Description of the flag

Potosíʼs flag is based on a pennant of the Vicunas, a factional group in the 16th century in the war between the Spanish and Basques. [med]

Assymetrical quarterly?

The flag of Potosí shows in some sources to be a “scandinavian quarterly”, i.e., with the vertical division off centered to the hoist. Is this so?
António Martins, 07 Sep 1999

No scandinavian quarterly: the effect in the image is due to be a waved flag. The flag is divised in four equal rectangular parts.

Simplified armorial banner?

Is the design of the flag based on the central eschuteon of the departmentʼs coat of arms, although the quartering is inverted?
