The Province of Catamarca (northwest of Argentina) had been ruled for a lot of years by the Partido Justicialista (Justicialist Party). The leader of Catamarca’s Justicialist Party was Ramón Saadi. Then a coalition of the oposition was formed and the Justicialism lost the provincial government.

The Frente Cívico y Social (F.C.y S.) is that local party, and it rules nowadays the Province of Catamarca. It is coalition party. Its main internal members are the local Unión Cívica Radical (Radical Civic Union), and some members of the local Partido Justicialista (P.J.) that do not agree with Ramón Saadi’s leadership. There are some other little political parties inside the F.C.y S. coalition also. Last August 24th 2003, there were governor elections in the Province of Catamarca. The F.C.y S. won the elections again.

About the flag

During the celebrations after the elections the F.C.y S. members appeared in the streets of Catamarca City with tricolor flags. Most flags were horizontal tricolor flags of white-green-red. However, horizontal tricolor flags of white-red-green were present also. It appears that the presence of the 3 colors is more important for F.C.y S. members than the exact color order. It is not rare that two of the colors of the F.C.y S. flag are white and red, because these are the Unión Cívica Radical colors. The U.C.R. is the bigest political party inside the F.C.y S. coalition.
