About the flag

National flag with the coat of arms overall.
António Martins, 16 May 2000

Both Flaggenbuch [neu39] and Album [pay00] label it as president's standard.
Ivan Sache, 16 October 2001

Is it possible it's also used as a "state" flag?
Nathan Lamm, 22 January 2005

Is this a "real" presidential flag, or used only as a rank flag on a Navy ship when the president is on board? (As it is in Argentina.)
António Martins, 5 May 2004

This flag can be seen at the pole of the Palacio de la Moneda, the official residence of the government.
Juan Pablo Pereira, 22 January 2005

The Chilean flag with coat-of arms, which I'd have thought would be hard to pull off on a flag with a canton, as there's no "center" to put the arms on.
Ii>Nathan Lamm, 15 October 2001

This online picture of the Chilean presidential has golden fringe as some indoors Chilean flags do. (There are Chilean Presidential Flags without fringe also).

Version with large coat-of-arms

The central arms in this on-line image are much smaller than reported in both Flaggenbuch [neu39] and Album [pay00]. What is it? A new version, two variants?
António Martins, 1 March 2005

Version with large star

Both Flaggenbuch [neu39] and Album [pay00] show the star in the presidential flag slightly larger then in the national flag, but this may not be intentional.
Željko Heimer, 13 December 2005

Following Flaggenbuch [neu39] and Album [pay00] information, the star is slightly bigger than the one in the National flag. However the size of the star should be the same in both flags.

Presidential sash (Banda Presidencial)

The Chilean Presidential Sash is a wide ribbon with three longitudinal stripes (parallel to the edges of the ribbon): red, white and blue. It is worn with the blue stripe above.
António Martins, 29 September 2006

President (photo online) dates sash
Sebastián Piñera Echenique 2018-present no coat of arms
Verónica Michelle Bachelet Jeria 2014-2018 no coat of arms
Sebastián Piñera Echenique 2010-2014 no coat of arms
Verónica Michelle Bachelet Jeria 2006-2010 no coat of arms
Ricardo Froilán Lagos Escobar 2000-2006 no coat of arms
Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle 1994-2000 no coat of arms
Patricio Aylwin Azócar 1990-1994 no coat of arms
Augusto Pinochet Ugarte 1973-1990 with coat of arms
Salvador Allende Gossens 1970-1973 no coat of arms
Eduardo Nicanor Frei Montalva 1964-1970 no coat of arms
Carlos Ibáñez del Campo 1952-1958 with coat of arms
Gabriel González Videla 1946-1952 with coat of arms
Carlos Ibáñez del Campo 1927-1931 with coat of arms

So the present day Chilean Presidential Sash (or at least the one worn by civilian presidents) does not have the embroidered coat of arms.
