Flags of Argentina Forum
The Flag of the Andes was a flag used by Argentine patriot Jose de San Martin and his Army of the Andes during their famous Crossing of the Andes and their subsequent military campaigns to Chile and Peru. The Flag of the Andes was personally designed by San Martin and sewn by ladies from the Cuyo region and wives of San Martin's officers. It includes a proto-Coat of arms of Argentina placed horizontally over a sky-blue and white bicolor background.
The same design used in the Flag of the Andes is used by the provincial government of Mendoza Province as their official flag.
