On line, in a local official document, it says:
diseño de la bandera de la Región San Martín
meaning «design of the flag of the San Martín region», which
suggests that there is a regional flag in San Martín.

San Martin used the triangular red-white flag, although I don't have photo evidence. Before
that it had a vertical green, white, green flag (like Nigeria).
