San Jerónimo Norte Municipality

The Commune of San Jeronimo Norte is part of Department of Las Colonias in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina. It has 5575 inhabitants.

The flag of San Jerónimo Norte was created thinking about the origins of the community and about the nationality of the [Swiss immigrant] ancestors, their first settlement in "The Four Mountains," which was the starting point for reaching base in San Jeronimo Norte. The flag is a combination of the above.

It is divided in four fields of visual forms asymmetrical, representing the arrival of the immigrants to "Los Cuatro Montes".

The white cross alludes to the crossing of roads that make up the Four Mountains, the cross of the Catholic faith so rooted in the ancestors and the cross of the Swiss flag.

The red color: It was marginalized on the left side of the emblem, two tables summarizing the intense red flag of Switzerland, respecting the dimensions, the symmetry of the white canes that form the cross.

Having found that reading is done from left to right, this location supports the logic in terms of Swiss origin of the people of San Jerónimo Norte. In addition, the color red is common in the flags of most of the nationalities of the immigrants who go to the place: Italians, Germans, French, Spanish, Russian, Lebanese, Croats, Poles, Yugoslavs, and so on.

Light blue color: To the right of the emblem are marginalized Celestial two zones, with the yellow circle, representing the colors and elements of the flag of Argentina. This location also reflects the transition from past to present, with regard to nationality.

The combination of red, white and blue - blue at the top evoking the flag of the Province of Santa Fe.

The yellow circle represents the sun as a source of energy, light and hope. It also denotes the core of families who travel from very distant lands to be placed on those who would be the fourth corner, without them knowing it, the geographic origin.

Authors of the flag are: Michael Moser (creator of the coat of San Jeronimo Norte 1974), Daniel Neder (Graphic Designer), Mariana Jullien (BA in Visual Communication Design).
