About the district

The Partido de Tres de Febrero is located next to the City of Buenos Aires. It is 43 km² and it had a total population of 336,467 inhabitants in the last census (2001).

The district’s name recalls the date of the Battle of Caseros in February 3, 1852, between the forces of the governor of Buenos Aires Province, Juan Manuel de Rosas and the governor of Entre Ríos Province, Justo José de Urquiza. The battle was fought inside the area of the present day Partido de Tres de Febrero.

Description of the flag

The specifications and meaning of the colours are:

  • Blue: Pantone process key 198-3; CMYK 80 60 0 20; meaning justice, loyalty and perseverance

  • Yellow: Pantone process key 1-1; CMYK 0 5 100 0: meaning nobleness,power and sovereignty.
The building inscribed in the ring of yellow stars is the pigeon house of Caseros, built in 1788 by Don Diego Casero (whose name was later given to the place as the "fualtive" Caseros). A hot spot in the battle of Caseros (3 February 1852), during which General Urquiza defeated Juan Manuel Rosas, the pigeon house was registered as a Historical Monument on 21 May 1942.

(*)[Editor’s note: 11 de Septiembre (September 11) is named that way because September 11, 1888 was the date when 19 Century President of Argentina Domingo Faustino Sarmiento died. As Sarmiento made several reforms in the Argentine Education system, then September 11 is "Teacher’s Day" in Argentina.]

All the stars have an equal status and none of them represents a specific component of the municipality.

The flag was designed by Sergio García, a graphist and teacher of Spanish, Latin and Literature living in Martin Coronado.
