If I understood this page right, there is a village flag for Villa Ortega, a locality in the Comune of Coihaique, in the Province of Coihaique, in the Region of Aysen, Chile.

The flag is rectangular, approx. 5:8, blue over aquamarine (?) horizontal, with a thin counterchanged stripe over all (approx. specs: (19+1+1+19):64). On the white area, three symbols side-by-side:

  • near the hoist a red half disc (showing NW and NE quadrants), off set to the bottom of the stripe, perhaps standing from setting sun;
  • centrally, off set to the top of the stripe, a dark yellow shape similar to an “eastern crown” with five stems, but probapbly standing for aurora australis (“southern lights”?);
  • on the fly, a dark brown outline of a human hand, with thumb turned to the hoist (i.e., either a right hand seen dorsally, or a left hand seen ventrally).
On the lower fly, ruining it all, the lettering "Villa Ortega" set in a sans serif face. All this assuming that a flat flag image showing the obverse is at the official webpage.
