Description of the flag

Ica is one of the five provinces in Ica region, Peru; according to Census 2005 it has population of 297,771 (from Wikipedia). Its flag with full story in Spanish is shown in the municipal website (image only).

Considering the text on the flag («Ciudad de Ica»), the domain name, and the contents of this link, I’m sure this is the flag of Ica city (see in the English and Spanish Wikipedias). Ica city is the capital of the synonym region and province and may be conterminous with the synonym district. The grapes on the flag may refer to pisco wine, which is the local major crop. The water bowl may stand for the Huacachina oasis or for the local river Ica.

Precisely at Where we can see that the shades of yellow and green are indeed dark as suggested in the file history of the Wikimedia images, that the blue area of the emblem does not have wave outlines, that the sun rays are attached, white with red outline, not loose, solid black; and that the grape bunches have white outline.
Please consider my image as a flat rendition of the cartoon image of the flag reported by Valentin; a standard image of the actual flag is
this still sought.
Note also that the grapes+sun+water emblem shown on the flag is not the local coat of arms, which is, in all its Spanish American splendor, shown at
