The town of Nogoyá (22,285 inhabitants in 2001) is the capital of the department of the same name, is located c. 100 km south-east of Paraná, the capital of the province of Entre Ríos.
The flag of Nogoyá, as shown graphically by "Victoria El Día", 1 October 2008, is horizontally divided red-blue-white-blue-green. The blue-white-green stripes are of equal height, forming the national flag, while the red and green stripes are of the same height and
slightly higher than the "national flag". There is a white disk placed closed to the hoist, charged with a map outlined in black and with a black dot, a yellow device on the left of the map and three blue waves on its right.
The map represents the Department of Nogoyá and the dot the town of Nogoyá. The blue waves must represent river Nogoyá. I expect the yellow device to recall that Nogoyá is the milk capital of the province.
The flag of Nogoyá is prescribed by Municipal Decree No. 718, signed on 4 July 2005 and with effect the next day.

to be more faithful to the description.
