The tradition says that azure and or were originally adopted on 1 May
1921, as its colours, by Club Sportivo Luqueño. The tradition further
says that these colours emerged from a "complex chemical equation"
mixing the colours of General Aquino, Marte Atlético and Vencedor, the
old clubs that amalgamated as Club Sportivo Luqueñ;o. Some historians
say that the colours were borrowed from one of the old clubs.
It is believed that the town subsequently adopted the new club's colours
as its own. Dissatisfied with this convenient explanation, the lawyer
Celso Guzmán Núñez claims that the colours of the flag of Luque come from the arms of Alonso de Luque, the town's founder, "Azure a lion
rampant or holding in his paws a star of the same".
