About the flag

The flag of Maule region is the Coat of Arms placed on a white field.
Unknown

This design matches the one shown in the 2008 photo taken at the National Congress building (in WikiCommons at [https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Regional_flags_of_Chile_in_the_National_Congress.jpg]): a white flag with the emblem, the lettering on its scroll being apparently "REGIÓN MAULE" in red serifless capitals.

Coat of arms

Wikipedia has an informative but unverified page on the Coat of Arms, in Spanish. The shield is quartered: in First quarter is an oak tree, in Second is an open book with feather pen in honour of distinguished local writers, in Third are stylized Andes Mountains and the Fourth quarter represents the land and coast.

The Spanish Wikipedia page on the Maule flag links back to this FOTW page.
