The flag of the Province of Málaga (photo, photo, photo, photo, photo,
photo) is white with a blue border, in width 1/8 of the flag's hoist, and the provincial coat of arms in the center.
The flag was designed in January 1978, based on the registration flag of the Maritime Province of Málaga. Neither the flag nor the arms were officially registered.
The coat of arms of the Province of Málaga is divided into two quarters.
The left (dexter) quarter is made of the municipal arms of Málaga, with the field azure instead of gules.
The right (sinister) quarter, added "at the time of the Republic", features 12 horizontal stripes, in turn red and yellow, representing the 12 judicial parties that form the province (Málaga excluded).
