Potosí’s flag is based on a pennant of the Vicunas, a factional
group in the 16th century in the war between the Spanish and Basques.

The flag of Potosí shows in some sources to be a “scandinavian
quarterly”, i.e., with the vertical division off centered to the
hoist. Is this so?
António Martins, 07 Sep 1999
No scandinavian quarterly: the effect in the image is due to be a waved
flag. The flag is divised in four equal rectangular parts.

flag webstore offers a Potosi flag which is clearly offset to the
right. Too bad the edge (and hoist) are not visible
image, not clearer).

Is the design of the flag based on the central eschuteon of the
department’s coat of arms, although the quartering is inverted?
