Juan Fernández municipality

[Juan Fernández arms]
by Chris Kretowicz, 11 Apr 2001

Other sites:

It consists of three islands: Robinson Cruzoe, Alejandro Selkirk, and Santa Clara. The only symbol of the Archipelago of Juan Fernandez that I know of is an emblem of the municipality. Flag of Chile is the only flag of the islands.

No chance of a white flag with the emblem on it, like in Easter Island?

Valparaíso municipality

[Valparaíso flag]
by Mello Luchtenberg, 04 Jul 2003

Notice that Valparaiso is the flag of the city and is not the regional flag. This mistake, due surely to a wrong or uncomplet translation from spanish, is reproduced in several web pages one copying to other.

Valparaíso historical flag?

[Valparaíso h. flag]
by Ivan Sache, 22 Jan 2001

It is from Norie/Hobbs, 1848 [noh48a]. Only information is the caption «Valparaiso».
Jarig Bakker, 21 Jan 2001

Red and white horizontal bi-colour (reverse to current Chilean national flag) with a white 5 pointed star in square canton; proportion 2:3.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 21 Jan 2001

I believe that is a mistake. [It is the] Chilean flag seen in Valparaiso, or perhaps a variation (very frequent) of the chilean flag.
Jaume Ollé, 21 Jan 2001

Possibly this flag was really in use, as there was some trouble in Valparaiso to get the Chilean flags from Santiago, so the authorities in Valparaiso made them themselves. Maybe Norie-Hobbs [noh48a] used the differentiation as they knew that the Chilean flag hoisted in Valparaiso did not look like those flags hoisted in Santiago.

The 1868 Dutch flag book shows a white five-pointed star in blue canton red over white.
Nozomi Kariyasu, 23 Jan 2001

The source is right, the flag but has a canton of black! Although in the scan it seems to be darkest blue, the authors had a grid of horizontal and vertical lines in the canton!
