No current official provincial flag

Though there is a provincial logo (Sol de Catamarca, the Catamarcan Sun), and an official provincial coat of arms, Catamarca has not adopted any provincial flag.

In 2002, a project of law was presented for the creation of a provincial flag of Catamarca. The author of that project was the justicialist (Peronist) provincial representative Nilda R. Navarro de Pandolfi. However no more news about this project have been heard.

Provincial coat of arms

[Province of Catamarca coat of arms]
by Francisco Gregoric, 03 Aug 2006

The provincial coat of arms was created by Law No.934 of June 24, 1922.

It is a red French shaped coat of arms that has inside an ellipse with the classic Argentine coat of arms (sky blue and white with two arms holding a spear with a Phrigian cap).

The Cross over two arrows, stands for the action of the missionaries and the bunch of grapes stands for the Wine industry

The crown and the castle stand for the past rule of Spain over Catamarca territory.

Finally the coat of arms has a raising sun, four Argentine flags and a crown of laurel.
