An official on line document intitled División Politico Administrativa y Sistema de Gobierno y Administración says i.a. that each region is administered by an Intendente.

This design matches the one shown in the 2008 photo taken at the National Congress building (in Wikimedia Commons); an image of the logo is at the official website (this looks very much like Jens’ source).

The logo shows stylized images of important elements of local history and economy; these elements are made of simple shapes in solid colors, mostly loose on the white background. It is enscribed in a square and has lettering above and below: "GOBIERNO REGIONAL DE" and "ANTOFAGASTA," proportionedly sized to fill one line the length of the logo, wide set in bold serifless condensed reddish-brown capitals. The logo itself shows as its main element a reddish-brown diamond (a square standing on its corner) with white double edge and a golden yellow loaded mine wagon. This diamond defines four triangular quadrants: On the upper fly, a darkest blue rendition of an observatory against a night sky with stars, an eclipse, and a comet; on the lower fly, a church against a light blue sky, a green tree, and a reddish-brown cave entrance (?); on the upper hoist, a factory with green walls, golden yellow windows, and white and reddish-brown stripped smokestack; on the lower hoist a cargo ship with reddish-brown crane, and darkest blue hull, windows, and funnel.

This flag is similar to the Intendent Standard, in that both place the National Coat of Arms on a yellow disc on a blue field. But this flag has a thick red ring bearing the inscription REGION DE ANTOFAGASTA CHILE, so you know where you are.
