Description of the flag

The province of San Román is part of the region of Puno. Its capital is the town of Juliaca (c. 200 000 inhabitants in 2001), located on the Altiplano at an elevation of 3825 m asl.

On 6 October 1926, President of the Republic Augusto B. Leguia signed Law #5463, which created the Province of San Román. Formerly, Juliaca was a district of the Department of Puno. The new province was officialy inaugurated on 24 October 1926. The celebration of the 80th anniversary of the foundation of the province will include, among other events, the hoisting of the national flag and of the flag of Juliaca on the parade ground of the town.

Juliaca District

At the official website (and previously in the Spanish Wikipedia before removal for copyright reasons), the district/city flag of Juliaca, in San Román province, Puno region. The flag is ~2:3 light blue with a very large emblem on it. It consists of a yellow cartouche with a vertical ellipse on it, colored light blue with gradient to white in the center. On it a tangent equilateral triangle showing a landscape with green and yellow ground, brown houses and mountains and white to light blue sky; above the houses a small yellow scroll. On the bottom edge of the triangle a white object (?) and on its tip a white caduceus. On the edge of the ellipse, opposite to each edge of the triangle, three red six-pointed regular stars upright each bearing a white "C". Under the cartuche a segment of railroad, showing red rail cross-sections, grey rails, and green ties; on the tip of each rail a red spinning spool (?) with black yarn, from which thread curlicues towards the horn above from both sides. A similar, but thicker black thread winds above the caduceus, spelling "Juliaca" in hand script, against a light blue ground behind and above the cartouche.

The white object recalls the initial "J" for Juliaca.

Could it be the tails of the caduceus’ snakes?

A newer flag of San Isidro. There exists some clear images at Sadly, I do not know anything about the flag, as with most Peruvian municipal flags.

Earlier flag

At the Flickr page of the district's government (posted in 2013), the flag of San Isidro is visible. Clearly it is inspired by the Peruvian flag, however in the center it says the name, San Isidro, and its status as a "centro poblado" (populated place) municipality. San Isidro became a municipality on August 24, 1990.

Santa Ana de Tarucani

At, the flag of Santa Ana de Tarucani is visible. I have created a drawing of it, but just to note, I am not entirely sure how the text should be. It is a horizontal triband of green, white, and blue with a red triangle on the hoist side. There probably exists a version without text, however, I am only aware of this specific version.

Tarucani became a municipality on May 19, 1995. 273 people were recorded by a Peruvian census.

Santiago Giraldo is a municipality located in an urban collectively known as Putina. It became a municipality on August 29, 1991.

Its flag is a triband of sky blue and white. In the center is the municipal coat of arms. Above and below is black text with white and black outlines. The text above is arched and says "MUNICIPALIDAD C.P." (initialism of "centro poblado", term for non-district municipalities; in English literally translated as "populated area".) Below is text which says "SANTIAGO GIRALDO", the municipality name.
