The Argentine flag was adopted February 25, 1818. The blue color on this flag is called “celeste” by Argentines, because it is the color of the day sky. Flag bearers in Argentina often go through an intense screening process. Competition is fierce in Argentine schools to win the honor of carrying the flag.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a black pole topped with a gold-painted spear. The 4 in. x 6 in. flag is mounted to a 10 in. pole, while the 8 in. x 12 in. flag is mounted to an 19 in. pole including 1 in. spear. Base not included.
