The flag of Western Province has four concentric rectangles. The outer one is white; the second one is green; the third is white with decorative leaves (green and yellow) in the corners and several green arrows separating each one of another figure (green and yellow) that must be the molar of Buddha.
In the dark red central rectangle, there are golden leaves in the conrners and three white rings. Within the first (near the hoist) is a golden snake with three heads; in the central one is a golden lion with sword; and in the last one (in the fly) is a golden bird or cock with a sword, facing the hoist. The flag is green fringed. A very good image from Jorge Hurtado was published in Gaceta de Banderas 95.
