Discussion

A Congress press release on line says:

Acto en la Plaza Bolívar lo presidió su titular Antero Flores »« Aquí, cada parlamentario se ubicó al pie de la bandera de la región a la que representa.
meaning «The event in Bolívar Square was presided by its office-holder Antero Flores »« Here each member of Parliament located himself under the flag of the region he represents.». This suggests that all regions have flags.
António Martins, 22 Mar 2006

Peruvian Vexillological Asociation will start an official sponsored travel though Peru for search for departmental, regional, provincial and districts flags to publish them in a future book. We can expect more new flags (note however that regional, departmental, several provinces and dozens of district flags are published in Flag Report 22 [frp] available already in Spanish).

About Peruvian regions: with the help of a Peruvian friend I was able to compile all the regional flags. There's a big problem: sometimes the region flag, the region government flag, or even the regional council are different. Few regions have official flags, but surely all (pending the confirmation of two) use white flags with arms or logo or the departmental flag. From the internet she found several photos. The following report is based always in photos. I will draw the images when possible.
