Campeche official symbols

According the article 5º of the Campeche State Constitution, "the official mandatory symbols for the State are the National flag, anthem and Coat of arms, as well as the State's Anthem and Coat of Arms."
The same article states that "shall not be neither other flags, anthems, nor coats of arms, and the usage of the National Symbols shall be regulated by Federal rules."

De los Símbolos Oficiales

ARTÍCULO 5o.- La Bandera, el Himno y el Escudo Nacionales así como el Himno y el Escudo propios del Estado, son los símbolos obligatorios del mismo. No habrá otras banderas, otros himnos ni escudos de carácter oficial, y el uso de los símbolos nacionales se sujetará a lo que dispongan los ordenamientos federales.

Bordure azure, tressured or. Imperial crown manteled azure, argent and gules (there might be a “cartouche” behind it all, or maybe just a highly detailed mantel).
