Mexican states’ flags?

The states of Mexico don't have their own flags, although they do have coats of arms.
Pascal Vagnat, 3 Jul 1996


We all know that mexican states do not have official flags, some even have constitutional dispositions stating that it is so and so should be (as in Baja California). However, we all know reports about unofficial flags for mexican states in several degrees of “unofficialness”.
António Martins, 22 Jun 1999


Remember Mexican states do not have flags; they always use the coat of arms of the state on a white background.

There's a significant Mexican population in this part of the U.S., and I occasionally see automobiles with bumper stickers consisting of the Mexican (national) flag and the name of a state ("Coahuila", "Chihuahua", etc.), presumably indicating the driver's loyalty or nostalgia for his home state. None of these stickers ever displays a flag other than the national flag.

Coat of arms of Mexico's constituent states and the Distrito Federal are place on a white background proportioned 4:7 according to those hoisted in the President's house called "Los Pinos" in Mexico City. These flags are also flown in national sports events such as the "Olimpiada Juvenil" (Youth Olympics), "Olimpiada Infantil" (Childhood Olympics), National Olympics, Benito Juárez football tournament, among others. They are also used during inter-states meetings or reunions, e. g.: religious, tourist, economic, and so on.

By some reason, the white clothes of Jalisco, Puebla, and Yucatán, hoisted at "Los Pinos", are charged with their respective capitals coat of arms. In addition to that, most of the shields are odd depictions of the original ones.

Another report refers that these very same state coats of arms are used in the central panel of a Mexican Tricolor, mainly for tourist purposes (some reports refer it’s exogenous usage, especially in border line US locations).
