This is the coronela flag [king's colour] of the Tercio de Gallegos [Galicia Volunteers Regiment] (1806) which can be seen at the Museo Histórico Nacional in Argentina. It was created together with other Units on 12th September 1806 when Liniers [the Viceroy of Río de la Plata, Captain General and Commander of the Navy] orders raising Militia-like or Provincial Regiments to reinforce the defence of Buenos Aires from a possible English attack similar to the one that had recently occurred. Five Creole regiments and a similar number of Spanish peninsular regiments were raised.

The command of this Regiment was given to the Commander of the Nautical School, which thus served as first instruction centre and is considered the oldest Military Academy in Argentina. Source: Mr. Horacio Vázquez Rivarola, National Nautical School.
