The decree n.o 5930 [here as typed by
Jaume Ollé, 29 Aug 2000], of 1992.10.21, adopts as the provincial
flag the flag of the Andes Army, meaning that
it is exactly as it is displayed on the Mendoza Government House. As the
flag is not shown on a pole I dont know the right way of hoist it.
The flag shows the coat of arms in the correct position, on two horizontal
stripes of white over blue. You may remember that the flag is exibited as
a standart or banner, as it is much higher than wide. The regulation does
not specify how to hoist the flag. Therefore we may think that the proper
way should be not on regular pole but from a "T"-type pole. Nothing was
legislated about the right way of representing it. The law says nothing
about this subject.

The correct sizes are 122 × 144 cm, from a photo of the original flag
that I took in a museum.
