Santa Fe, Argentina


Roughly translated, this flag reads “Invincible Province of Santa Fe.” I really hope they’re good with a spear and two arrows, because if that’s their munitions stockpile, they could be wiped out by one guy with a gun. Not so invincible. Alhtough in the ’60s and ’70s, Argentina did flirt with a veiled nuclear weapons program. A little bit of acting out at a time when the U.S. and Soivet Union were fighting proxy wars the world over, except for the Southern Cone. But then they thought it through: we’re Argentina, right? Who is our enemy? Brazil? Paraguay? Then the Argentines realized their efforts were best spent on drinking yerba mate, getting suntans and plastic surgery and wrapped it up.
