Description of the flag

Province of Condorcanqui is in Amazonas Region, Peru. It has about 47 000 inhabitants on 17 865 km². Its flag is shown in provincial website.

It is a quite original design, yet fully composed of classical usual vexillographic elements (albeit countering the heraldic rules of colors): A vertical tricolor of blue, white and green, the blue area containing a tangent red (?) hoist triangle — its base coinciding with the flag's hoist edge and the apex with the midpoint of the blue-white boundary. Approximate ratio: 2:3; shade of blue apparently light.
António Martins, 24 Sep 2007

The flag was designed by Juan Alberto Torres Linares. Red recalls the blood shed in the different armed conflicts with Ecuador* ; the point of the red triangle touching the white field, synonym of peace, means that peace and friendship have been reestablished and that we don't want to shed more blood for unnecessary reasons. Light blue represents the water resources of the region. White means eternal peace. Green represents the Amazonian forest.
The flag should be hoisted on a golden hoist, representing the resources in timber and gold of the province.

* The Province of Condorcanqui was involved in a long-running territorial dispute between Peru and Ecuador. The Ecuadorian-Peruvian War (5-31 July 1941) ended with a Peruvian victory and the signature of the Rio Protocol (29 January 1942), which did not prevent another two conflicts to break out, the Paquisha War (January-February 1981) and the Cenepa War (26 January - 28 February 1995. The dispute was, hopefully, settled with the Final Peace Agreement signed on 26 October 1998, restoring the borders fixed by the Rio Protocol.
