The Flag

I checked the with the governor office of the department and I found out that the department of San Miguel flag, should be red on top, white in the middle and blue on bottom, with the emblem in the middle.

According to <>: "La Bandera: Consta de tres franjas horizontales: la franja superior es roja que simboliza el amor fraternal que caracteriza a los migueleños. La franja azul simboliza la libertad legada por nuestros próceres y la franja blanca en el centro, el anhelo de paz que como fieles devotos de la co-patrona de El Salvador deseamos una paz firme y duradera."

As it said in the description, the upper stripe is RED. It has three horizontal stripes: the upper stripe is red, and symbolize the brotherhood love that distinguuish the miguelians. The blue stripe symbolize the liberty inheireted  from the ancesters, and the white stripe in center symbolize the wish of peace.
This correct arrangament was already reported by Frederic Drew and published in Flag Report 20.
