Former flag of the Regional Council

[Former flag of the RC]by Jaume Ollé

The first flag of the Regional Council was a European Union-like flag: blue with eight stars (representing the eight departments in the region) and a little red cross of Toulouse in upper canton. That flag was in use during the 1986-1992 mandate of the Regional Council.
