Presidential Flag ashore

On land the president uses the national flag with the Sun of May.
Jarig Bakker, 17 Jun 1999, quoting from [ped80]

Presidential Flag afloat

[Presidential flag of Argentina]
by António Martins, 21 Jun 2000

The presidential Navy rank flag — or better the naval rank flag of the Supreme Commander of the Argentine Armed forces, who is inherently the President.
António Martins, 21 Jun 2000

Light blue background flag is shown in [pay00], in ratio 3:4, with note that it is only for use at sea.
Zeljko Heimer, 03 Feb 2001

Colours: Backgound pale blue (celeste) and stars white. Coat of arms multicolored. Ratio: 2:3. I don’t know the date of adoption, but it was in use before 1910.
Jaume Ollé, 02 Jul 1996

The President’s Standard is light blue, with a badge in the centre and a white five-pointed star in each of the four corners. This badge consists of an oval shield, divided into halves, the top being light blue and the lower white. Overall are two hands grasping a staff on which is a red cap of liberty. Above is a golden sun, and the shield is surrounded by a laurel wreath, which, unlike most wreaths used in a similar position, partly obscures the face of the sun.
Jarig Bakker, 17 Jun 1999, quoting from [bar71]

Incorrect depictions

[err. Pres. flag of Argentina]
by António Martins, 21 Jun 2000

In Album des Pavillons [pay], the President’s ensign is dark blue field, phrygian cap yellow, proportion 3:4.
Ivan Sache, 10 Oct 1999

The argentine presidential ensign image in ratio 2:3 shows in the Flaggenbuch 1905 [ruh05]. But I have had the chance of learning that this 1905 edition is not very accurate — nothing to do with the 1939 edition compiled by Neubecker.
Jaume Ollé, 27 Feb 2000

Some sources, like Album 1995 issue, Smith’s 1980 book, and Flagbulletin, shown the flag with dark blue background. If Ihave understood the discussions here rightly, the dark blue flag was never used nor correct — it was always the light blue (though it seems that in time of WWII the proportion was slightly different, 9:10).
Zeljko Heimer, 03 Feb 2001

Note that in Flaggenbuch 1939, [neu92] the field of the President’s ensign is celeste blue, phrygian cap red, proportion 9:10.
Ivan Sache, 10 Oct 1999

Presidential transport flag

[Presidential transport flag]
by António Martins, 21 Jun 2000

Ratio conjectural. Status uncertain, might have been only a proposal; at most it is used on presidential land vehicles.
António Martins, 21 Jun 2000

A triband flag of light blue / white / light blue with the coat of arms at the center of the white stripe is used as “transportation flag” on any vehicle used by the president.
Gustavo Tracchia, 05 Sep 1999

President’s presence signal flag

A smaller flag is hoisted below the national flag at the Casa Rosada to indicate the presence of the president.
Gustavo Tracchia, 05 Sep 1999
