About the district

The District of Daireaux (15,857 inhabitants in 2001, 10,932 in the town of Daireaux; 3,820 sq. km) is located in the west center of the Buenos Aires Province, 400 km from Buenos Aires City.

Daireaux emerged near the Daireaux railway station, inaugurated on 6 November 1899 on a plot offered by the Franco-Argentine lawyer, writer and journalist Emilio Daireaux. In 1902, the Italian immigrant Pablo Guglieri (1865-1953) purchased 610 h from Emilio Daireaux, and, subsequently, several other plots form different owners on which he founded a new settlement.

The municipality of Caseros, with the town of Daireaux as its capital, was established by Provincial Law No. 3,244 of 5 July 1910. Caseros was subsequently renamed Daireaux.

Description of the flag

The flag of Daireaux is horizontally divided blue-green. with a big yellow, 13-rayed rising sun in the blue stripe. All over is placed a circular emblem horizontally divided celestial blue-white-celestial blue.

The flag was inaugurated on 1 July 2010, together with the Centenary Post.

The flag, designed by Mariano Rodríguez, Juan Cruz Balbona, José Ignacio Balbona and Diego Tomás Santiago, had been selected 14 years ago in a public contest organized by the Municipal Council, as requested by Constanza Suárez de los Santos.

The green stripe represents the productive soil and the Pampas plain. The central emblem features a dragon, taken from the municipal coat of arms and representing the town of Daireaux as the capital of the municipality, and St. Joseph, as the patron saint of the community. The celestial blue-white background of the emblem recalls the national flag. The celestial blue upper field represents the sky upon Daireaux, while the white field represents union, purity and peace. The celestial blue lower field represents water.

The rising sun represents production, while its 13 rays represents the settlements forming the municipality. The horizontal central line, together with the sun, represents the rising of the nation.

This morning the ceremony was held to present the flag that will identify the district of Daireaux. At the same time, the Centennial Landmark was discovered.
The meeting was chaired by the Municipal Mayor Dr. Esteban Hernando, who was accompanied by the Provincial Deputy Luis Oliver, councilors, school counselors, educational authorities and members of the municipal cabinet. A significant number of school delegations, institutions, intermediate entities and the public were present to celebrate the event.

Initially, the stanzas of the Argentine National Anthem were sung and - then - the creators of the Deroense flag were invited to present it to Mayor Hernando. The district flag was chosen 14 years ago, through an initiative by Miss Constanza Suárez De los Santos, who presented a letter to the Deliberative Council, raising the concern of the need to have a flag that identifies the district of Daireaux. Thus, a contest was called with the name "Looking for the Deroense Flag" and after the presentation of several works, the one prepared under the pseudonym "Huinca" was chosen, its authors being Mariano Rodríguez, Juan Cruz Balbona, José Ignacio Balbona and Diego Tomas Santiago.

One of the winners of the aforementioned contest presented the descriptive memory of the flag, citing that "the lower part is green, representing a productive soil and the Pampas plain, since our party belongs to that region. In the central part is the dragon of our shield, representing Daireaux, as the head of the party, and San José Obrero, as patron of our community. In the background the light blue and white of our National Flag appears. The light blue, located at the top, represents the sky that shelters all Deroenses; White represents the union, purity and peace of our party; the sky-blue below, the water mirrors. The rising sun that illuminates us and fills us with energy every day, yellow in color, represents production and its thirteen rays are the locations of the party. "This is how the flag is formed with a well-marked horizon that, together with the sun, represents the dawn of our country."

Next, Dr. Esteban Hernando presented centenary medals to the winners of the contest and to immediate family members of those who, due to work reasons, could not be present.

On the other hand, members of the board of directors of the Municipal Public Library, presented a present to Mr. Alejandro Vinelli (grandson of Camilo Charó and great-grandson of Dr. Alejandro Lawezzari).
