by Santiago Candelo


(EN) Argentinian turned flag


This series was taken between 2015-2019 in more than 30 argentinian cities. 

It shows an unwritten tradition. Either for celebration days, football games or just for esthetics. You can see the Argentine flag on windows, doors, stores, etc. The particularity: always turned.

According to IRAM , the institution that gives certification and standards, the argentinian flag “... the flag must be made with three horizontal stripes of the same size with the seam or without it, of the simple fabric, the flag hoist. With double cloth, the ceremony flags...” IRAM-DEFD 7679 standard in points 3.2.1.
