Flag of city and department of Lima
(coat of arms is not always used).

In our archives there are two Lima flags, the city proper, and the
Metropolitan city flag, this last one a vertical
copperish banner that might looks like a deep burned yellow. the city
flag resembles a yellow-tan.

I suspect that exist two banners: one for the city
and other for the province or metropolitan municipality. The Lima government
posted me some months ago several photos with Lima city flag and Lima province
banner, and common arms. They don’t mention a banner for the city (neither a
flag for the province) but is frequently in Latin America. The Lima city flag
is more clear (dark yellow or light ochre) that the provincial banner (redish
ochre). The banner of Lima city must be then dark yellow or light ochre.

The banner in which the Lima’s coat of arms is displayed is gold (yellow),
following a very old heraldic use.

A vertical swallowtail in a colour close to dark yellow with the
greater arms of Lima centered in the solid portion.

A wonderful golden flag with the splendid colonial coat of arms that Queen Juana I and King Carlos I gave to the then called Ciudad de los Reyes (City of the Kings). José Luis de Cuenca Orbegoso, Jul 2002
When I visited Lima in April 2002, I saw Lima’s flag of dark yellow
many times. I am not sure they substitute dark yellow for golden flag.

The past president of the Chesapeake Bay Flag
Association, whose name escapes my mind at the moment, displayed an
eight-striped rainbow flag before a meeting last year which he purchased
in Peru. It was specifically pointed out that it was different than the
Gay Pride flag. He claimed it to be the flag

Absoltely wrong. I received some weeks ago several photos and written
information from the Alcalde (Mayor) of Lima: the city flag (and
also the municipal council of Lima) is not
multicolored, but monocolored dark yellow, with shield.

That flag of eight stripes is a quishwa aymara flag, the flag of the
