The Partido de Barracas al Sud (the first name of the district) was officially created in 1852. In 1904, it took its present name to honor XIX Century Argentine President Nicolás Avellaneda.

No current official local flag

The Partido of Avellaneda got a new flag. The news is dated 01.11.2023 (November 1st 2023)

The design presented by Juan Ignacio Iglesias, a student at the Sara Eccleston de Wilde School, was the winner.

The “I want my flag” contest, promoted by the Municipality of Avellaneda, through the Institutional Communication Council, called on all local educational institutions to create the flag of our city. As a result, more than one hundred models were presented and the proposal chosen by the 8,000 voters who participated in the call was that of Juan Ignacio Iglesias, a student at the Sara Eccleston de Wilde School. His teacher is Verónica Luna.

This flag brought together elements that constitute the identity of the seven towns that make up Avellaneda, and took into account the prominence of the work and education industries. The background design is made up of three rectangles. The blue represents the stream and the Río de la Plata, and the green represents the sustainable policy in reference to parks, squares and small squares. Each locality is represented by a star. At the same time, the seven stars account for the day of the founding of Avellaneda, under the name of Barracas al Sud, on April 7, 1852. The shield in the middle symbolizes different particularities of our district, such as the port, sports and citizenship. The past and present dialogue to build the future.

During General Perón’s second government (1952-1955), some elements of the Peronist emblem were adopted for the regional coat of arms of Avellaneda Municipality.

After Perón was deposed in 1955, all these emblems were forbidden by the Military Government.
