The Partido de Tres de Febrero is located next to the City of Buenos Aires. It is 43 km² and it had a total population of 336,467 inhabitants in the last census (2001).
The district’s name recalls the date of the Battle of Caseros in February 3, 1852, between the forces of the governor of Buenos Aires Province, Juan Manuel de Rosas and the governor of Entre Ríos Province, Justo José de Urquiza. The battle was fought inside the area of the present day Partido de Tres de Febrero.

(*)[Editor’s note: 11 de Septiembre (September 11) is named that way because September 11, 1888 was the date when 19 Century President of Argentina Domingo Faustino Sarmiento died. As Sarmiento made several reforms in the Argentine Education system, then September 11 is "Teacher’s Day" in Argentina.]
All the stars have an equal status and none of them represents a specific
component of the municipality.
The flag was designed by Sergio García, a graphist and teacher of Spanish, Latin and Literature living in Martin Coronado.
