The CIA Fact book for 2000 lists the following:
Administrative divisions: 18 departments (departamentos, singular - departamento); Atlantida, Choluteca, Colon, Comayagua, Copan, Cortes, El Paraiso, Francisco Morazan, Gracias a Dios, Intibucá, Islas de la Bahia, La Paz, Lempira, Ocotepeque, Olancho, Santa Barbara, Valle, Yoro.

As far as I know some of the departments have a flag and others
don't. Intibucá doesn't have flag, neither arms, but after some
years the arms of the Development Committee of Intibucá is used by
the department authorities as departmental arms. I believe that
flags of the departments capitals are used as departmental flags
when is needed, but not all the capitals have flag. Comayagua, Tegucigalpa (Francisco Morazan),
Trujillo (Colon) and perhaps some others
have flag. If I don't remember wrong a departmental flag was
published in Estandarte.
