|Flag of Tierra del Fuego|
|Adopted||June 1999 |
|Designed by||Teresa Beatriz Martínez |
The flag of the Argentina province Tierra de Fuego (officially Tierra del Fuego, Antártida e Islas del Atlántico Sur) has a white stylized flying albatross facing the upper fly, and its wingspan stretches from the canton corner of the flag to the lower fly corner of the flag. The area of the flag above the albatross is blue, and the area below it is orange. In the center of the blue area is a stylized version (using white five-pointed stars) of Crux.
Blue represents the ocean and the sky, the albatross is a symbol of Tierra del Fuego, and Santa Cruz is a very famous guide constellation in the Southern Hemisphere.
Argentina claims the next territories to be parts of this province:
- The Falkland Islands, known in Argentina as Islas Malvinas (administrated by the United Kingdom)
- South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (administrated by the United Kingdom)
- A sector of Antarctica
