Chajarí is a city in the northeast of the province of Entre Ríos, Argentina. It has 30,655 inhabitants per the 2001 census, and it is the largest city in the Federación Department. It lies on Provincial Route 2, about 2 km east of the intersection with National Route 14 and west of the Salto Grande reservoir on the Uruguay River, 330 km from the provincial capital Paraná.
The settlement of Chajarí was populated after joint efforts of the provincial and national governments to encourage colonization. The original town, called Villa Libertad, was founded on 28 May 1872; colonists began arriving in 1876 from several regions of Italy. The municipal government was established in 1889, and in 1934 the town changed its name to match that of its railway station, Chajarí.
The flag of the municipality is shown and described in the municipal website.

The flag of Chajari is horizontally divided celestial blue-green with an orange
triangle placed along the host and reaching 60% of the flag's length. An emblem
featuring a hand holding a rising sun is placed close to the fly.
Celestial blue represents the new alternative center for social, political and economical progress, the Chajari spa complex.
Green represents the resources of the soil and vivid aspiration to growth.
Orange represents citriculture, the main pillar of the economical and social development of the town.
The open hand is a symbol of solidarity; the coloured carnation alludes to the native peoples, while the roughness of its representation emphasizes the tenacity of those at the origin of the prosperity of the town and to the daily commitment of all citizens.
The rising sun represents blossoming and prosperity of the promised land.
