The current Cochabamba department flag is the flag used
by the Cochambians in the Battle of
Aroma (Independence war). The celeste is for freedom.
[med] In a Bolivian atlas I
saw a variant of this flag, with
horizontal blue and white.
However, I think this is the correct one.

Flag with coat of arms
by António Martins, 19 Nov 1999
This image uses a coat of arms from
I’m not sure if this is the new coat of arms, though.
António Martins, 19 Nov 1999
According to [bol90] and to
W. G. Jilek’s article in [vex]
94, the flag of Cochabamba is horizontal, light blue
over white. The blue flag mentioned by some
sources is probably erroneous.
