[Municipality of Nogoya flag] image by Ivan Sache, 18 Sep 2010

The town of Nogoyá (22,285 inhabitants in 2001) is the capital of the department of the same name, is located c. 100 km south-east of Paraná, the capital of the province of Entre Ríos.

The flag of Nogoyá, as shown graphically by "Victoria El Día", 1 October 2008, is horizontally divided red-blue-white-blue-green. The blue-white-green stripes are of equal height, forming the national flag, while the red and green stripes are of the same height and slightly higher than the "national flag". There is a white disk placed closed to the hoist, charged with a map outlined in black and with a black dot, a yellow device on the left of the map and three blue waves on its right.

The map represents the Department of Nogoyá and the dot the town of Nogoyá. The blue waves must represent river Nogoyá. I expect the yellow device to recall that Nogoyá is the milk capital of the province.

The flag of Nogoyá is prescribed by Municipal Decree No. 718, signed on 4 July 2005 and with effect the next day. The premable of the Decree states that the flag was designed by Nogoyá-born Germán Kainer, who win a public contest prescribed by Decree No. 585, 27 September 2005, setting up the adhoc Commission.

    Article 1. The municipal flag of the town of Nogoyá is created, to be used in all places and events where identification of the town is required.
    Article 2. The characteristics of the flag created by Article 1 are the following:

    • an horizontal red stripe in the uper part of the flag and an other stripe of the same size, green, in the lower part of the flag, symbolizing, the first, federalism, and the latter, agriculture and cattle-breeding;

    • the two stripes linked by another stripe of smaller size, with the colours and display of the national flag, separated from the two first stripes by another, narrow white stripe, symbolizing the national colors;

    • at hoist and centered, a white disk symbolizing purity and cattle breeding, charged with the outline of the department territory with the accurate location of the capital, a yellow half-gear representing agroindustrial production and three signs representing water.
The small image of the flag shown on the municipal website does not match the written description, since two white stripes are missing. The image contributed ti Wikipedia by "Guglelmo", 26 March 2008, seems to be more faithful to the description.
