About the flag and coat of arms

The shield shows the three provinces which make up the region: Elqui, Limari and Choapa. The dots on the map correspond to their seats, I guess. There’s also three stars, a fish on a stylized river, a book, a cornucopia, a bunch of grapes and a flower. According to Gustavo Tracchia, the flag background is very dark blue.

I received the information from Coquimbo regional government about 7 or 8 years ago I believe that image was also available in one of the 8 issues of Flag Report [frp] that were available in the net and with complete image information.
