At http://www.municipiolarioja.gov.ar/escudo_bandera_municipal.html we can find information about the flag and emblem of the municipality Todos los Santos de La Nueva Rioja in the province of La Rioja. At http://www.municipiolarioja.gov.ar/bandera_lar.html, there’s more information about the flag (in Spanish). There we can read that it has not been officially adopted but this should happen during the next constitutional convention (no date quoted).

According to information provided by the municipal government, all the flags made are 0.90 m wide × 1.40 m long. This is the same ratio than Argentine Ceremonial Indoors Flags 9:14.

The coat of arms in the flag is the official symbol of the City of La Rioja. It was created by municipal decree No.372 on December 24, 1941.

It has a Spanish heraldic shape. Inside it and above the Velazco Hills that are located next to La Rioja City. Then the silhouette of the city appears. There is an Argentine ribbon that appears as a sash. The cross stands for the Christian faith, and the "falucho" hat recalls the old municipalities. The golden key recalls the traditional "cities keys" of ancient cities,

No more details about the flag, which is obviously inspired from the provincial flag of La Rioja.
