Unofficial state flag of Yucatán

This flag flag, one of several variants, is that used by the Republic of Yucatán between March 16, 1841 (officially from October 20, 1841) and December 15, 1843.
Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán July 21, 2001.

At present it is seen everywhere as part of a tourist campaign of the state government.

Coat of arms

Yucatán coat of arms
by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán, May 06, 2001.

The coat of arms consists of an "iberian" shield (round pointed with parallel sides and flat top), vert, a deer or leaping from the sinister over an unidentified charge on a mound, all under a sun placed in the sinister canton, all of the same; bordure or charged with two churches, sinister and dexter, and two castle towers, top and bottom, all or lined vert. Bellow the shield, a scroll with the isncription "YUCATÁN" in black capitals.
António Martins, 22 Jun 1999


Thogh the adoption of the new arms; in "Los Pinos", is still hoisted a white flag charged with the former arms.

Like most of the Mexican states, Yucatán first used as arms those granted to its capital city: Mérida:

"A Spanish shield parted, the firts pale (left) azur charged by a castle in gold, and the second pale (right) a rampant lion in gold on sinople (green). The top is a royal crown. The ribbon bellow the shield bear the motto: "Muy noble y muy leal ciudad de Mérida".
